Race ace Andrew Jordan loves his MG off the track as much as he does his race -prepared MG6 on the tarmac.
Andrew will contest the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship this year in an MG Triple Eight Racing MG6, while off the track he’s behind the wheel of an MG3.
After just a month of driving the MG3 the 2013 BTCC champion has, like thousands of other MG3 drivers, clearly fallen for the super-mini’s charms. Andrew said: “I don’t want this to sound too gushing and fake, but the MG3 is probably the nicest road car I’ve ever used.
“For under ten grand, it’s an excellent run around, and my Dad loves it. He’s actually really tempted to go and get one; the quality, performance and value are great. It’s a super little smart car.
“I use it all the time,” said the new MG racing star. “It’s a great little car and it packs a punch.”
On the track Andrew has got to grips with the racing MG6 in early shake down runs at Brands Hatch and is equally impressed with the race car. He added: “
The car is great, as you’d expect from a 2014 championship manufacturer winner, it’s very quick and rides the kerbs well.
“I’m looking forward to visiting Thruxton next week for more testing because there’s a lot I want to try there and I’m really excited about trying to get even more out of the MG because I love the track.”
The 2015 BTCC season opens at the Brands Hatch circuit on April 4/5March.
Last year MG and Triple Eight Racing took the BTCC Manufacturer/Constructor title and off-track, MG was the fastest growing brand in Britain.
In the last 12 months the number of MG dealers has almost doubled. There are currently 56 MG dealerships and 10 after sales outlets across the country. More dealers will be appointed in the coming months.
