Team Press Release
Britain’s Andrew Jordan will compete at the British round of the 2017 FIA World Rallycross Championship at Lydden Hill for MJP Racing Team Austria alongside World RX regular Kevin Eriksson.
Britain’s Andrew Jordan, British Touring Car and Rallycross Champion commented: “It’s brilliant to join MJP Racing Team Austria for the British round of the 2017 FIA World Rallycross Championship at Lydden Hill. Rallycross Supercars are so impressive to drive, the level of cars and teams has stepped up massively over the last couple of years and I’m very lucky to get to drive one for MJP Racing Team Austria. Rallycross holds great memories for me from when I started racing at 14 years old to standing on a World Rallycross podium, I love the sport and am hugely proud to compete at my home event. For sure it’s is just a one off but I think we will have great potential to make some great result. Thanks to the Team and their sponsors for giving me this opportunity.”
Team owner Max J. Pucher: “Due to the fact that Timo Scheider has a date conflict he will not be able to drive the British round with us. We are very glad to have Andrew Jordan standing in for Timo. Andrew is a fantastic driver who already achieved a podium at Lydden Hill World RX in 2014. I think that he could do it again and put up a fantastic show with the WorldRX regulars. We don’t put Andrew under any pressure, but we certainly have high expectations. For sure there will be many fans out there cheering for Andrew and our Team. We will give both the best possible opportunity for a fantastic event at Lydden Hill.”
