Jordan, who has 16 BTCC race wins to his name, as well as the title in 2013 in a family-run Honda Civic, will tackle the 30-round BTCC in one of West Surrey’s front-running BMW 125i M Sport racers, with backing from long-time sponsor Pirtek.
And that got us thinking: how many drivers have won races for one of the series’ most successful squads? The answer is 12 – Will Hoy, James Thompson, Peter Kox, Tom Kristensen, Anthony Reid, Warren Hughes, Colin Turkington, Rob Collard, Tom Onslow-Cole, Stephen Jelley, Sam Tordoff and Andy Priaulx. It’s a list of great names that Jordan will be keen to join once the series gets underway at Brands Hatch next April.
So which of those drivers has done the most winning for WSR aboard Ford Mondeo, Honda Accord, MG ZS, BMW 320si and 125i M Sport machinery since the Sunbury-on-Thames outfit first struck big in the BTCC in 1998?
