Podium finish for MG Triple Eight Racing’s Andrew Jordan

After what turned out to be a challenging weekend for the MG Triple Eight Racing team, the hopes of being up on the podium at Thruxton came true with a second place finish during the final race of the day.

The fastest track in the UK has in previous years offered little joy for the MGs, but the team fought hard to make this year an exception.

Andrew Jordan’s efforts during the final race paid off as he stepped up on the podium to celebrate second alongside winner Adam Morgan and third place Sam Tordoff. Jordan maintained his position of second throughout the race, but took the opportunity to get closer to the winner Morgan when the safety car came out.

Jack Goff may have had a tougher drive in the final race, but he came close to a podium finish in race two. Goff started tenth on the grid but quickly worked his way through the pack and moved higher following a collision between Matt Neal and Aron Smith. In lap five, Goff was only 1.2 seconds behind Neal for the fastest lap. He made further progress in lap ten when he set the fastest time on the track, but couldn’t quite get past Gordon Shedden to secure the podium finish.

The race winners were Gordon Shedden (race one), Jason Plato (race two) and Adam Morgan (race three). Plato’s win in the second race saw him celebrate his 90th Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship race.

As we head towards Oulton Park in four weeks time (6/7 June), we hope to see a podium finish for both Andrew Jordan and Jack Goff. Morgan has been described as showing the sort of consistency that could prove vital over the course of a season and that which took him to glory in 2013.
