Andrew Jordan is set to remain in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship until at least the end of 2021 after extending his deal with long-time sponsors Pirtek UK.
The new three-year deal is set to come into play at the end of the 2018 campaign, further strengthening a partnership that has been in place for more than a decade.
Beginning in 2004 when Andrew’s father Mike competed in the British GT Championship, Pirtek have adorned the side of Jordan racing cars as headline sponsors across a variety of different categories, including Rallycross and the Renault UK Clio Cup.
Since moving into the BTCC in 2008, the Jordan/Pirtek relationship has continued to thrive with plenty of success along the way; including three Independent Drivers’ titles and the overall crown in 2013.
Looking to add a second title this year as he continues with West Surrey Racing, the 28-year-old is elated to have further cemented his strong ties with Pirtek.
“I’m absolutely delighted to be able to extend my deal with Pirtek for another three years – particularly when we still have a year to run on our current deal,” Jordan said.
“Back when our deal with Pirtek first started, we couldn’t have imagined it would have become the long-term partnership it is now, and one of the most long-standing relationships in British motorsport.
“What we have with Pirtek is much more than just a traditional sponsorship deal; we have a special relationship that has developed from working with [marketing manager] Tammie Argent-Peters and her team through the years, and that works for all parties involved.
“That is something that I am extremely proud of as relationships like that rarely come along, and I’m looking forward to working with Tammie to explore new ways in which we can showcase our partnership – in both the BTCC and elsewhere – in the coming years.
“For me personally, it is huge to have the security of a new multi-year deal as it allows me to focus on the job I have to do on track, and I feel we are in a fantastic position to challenge for top honours together for another four years.”
