Andrew Jordan – Walero Athlete
The Youngest ever BTCC champion
Andrew Jordan’s racing career began back in 2003 in the Junior Rallycross Championship. He went on to win the winter series in his first season and became BTRDA Junior Rallycross champion the following year. Further success in the rallycross discipline followed until 2008, when he made the switch to the BTCC. That year he drove a Eurotech/John Guest Racing Honda Integra and was 13th overall with two podiums.
In 2009 Jordan made history at Donington Park behind the wheel of his VX Racing Vauxhall Vectra, becoming the youngest ever driver to score a BTCC pole position. Jordan matured as part of the family-run Pirtek Racing squad into one of the fastest and most consistent touring car drivers around, winning the Independents’ title in 2012, and going one better in a stunning 2013 season to take the overall BTCC Drivers’ championship.
Andrew has also been busy establishing his credentials on the historic racing scene. He’s taken several victories at events like the Goodwood Revival and Goodwood Members’ Meeting, driving everything from an Austin A30 to a Porsche 911, while occasional outings in the World Rallycross Championship have kept him in touch with the sport that launched his motorsport career. The Goodwood Festival of Speed has become a frequent event for Andrew, and, in 2018, he became victorious in the BTCC shootout on the hill, getting 52.68 seconds on his winning run.
A switch to the legendary West Surrey Racing team for the 2017 BTCC season saw Andrew behind the wheel of the squad’s BMW 125i M Sport machine. He finished ninth overall and went one better a year later, finishing fifth overall.
In the 2019 season, after a successful , Andrew came short of just two points for the title and took second place overall at the British Touring Car Championship.
