Andrew Jordan reveals celebratory one-off Pirtek livery

Andrew Jordan will run a special one-off livery at Snetterton this weekend to coincide with his brand new three-year deal with long-time sponsors Pirtek.

I’m going to enjoy my racing this weekend, I’ve really been looking forward to getting back behind the wheel.”
