BRITISH Touring Car champion Andrew Jordan will make his Goodwood Revival return this year at the wheel of an Austin A40 – along with his father.
The car was shaken down this week and will test at the Goodwood Motor Circuit on March 3, with both Andrew and his father Mike taking a turn behind the wheel. Andrew made his Goodwood Revival debut in 2012 at the wheel of a Morris Minor in the St Mary’s Trophy while Mike – a race winner in the BTCC and a former British GT champion – first appeared at the West Sussex event last year, taking pole position for the Whitsun Trophy for Ford GT40s.
Andrew Jordan said: “I first raced at Goodwood in the Revival in 2012 in a Morris Minor and had a brilliant time – in fact, I’d go as far to say that it was probably the most fun I’ve ever had at a race weekend, and the attention to detail at the event was pretty amazing too.
“I was gutted last year that I couldn’t do the event because of a date clash with the BTCC, so I was really happy that the dates matched up for me this year and that we’ve secured an entry.
“The entire reason we decided to build the car was to race it at Goodwood and it has all the original seats and instruments. We’re pretty confident it will run at the front too.”
Goodwood Revival is set to take place from September 12 to 14.
