Reigning British Touring Car champion Andrew Jordan has become a Red Bull Athlete.
Jordan, who took the 2013 crown with his family run Eurotech Honda Civic, is the first racing driver to become part of the scheme, which supports a number of sports men and women in a variety of extreme competitions.
AUTOSPORT understands that Jordan will still run the same Pirtek-based livery on his Civic in 2014, but will use a Red Bull-branded crash helmet.
"I worked with them in 2013 and have been talking to Red Bull since 2011," said Jordan, who will also participate in various Red Bull events.
"I'm delighted to be part of their programme.
"It's good for me and good for the championship for them to be involved."
Andrew Jordan will be among the star guests at AUTOSPORT International this weekend, along with a host of other BTCC stars and cars, past and present
