Snetterton BTCC: Andrew Jordan in hospital after practice crash

Reigning British Touring Car champion Andrew Jordan has been taken to hospital following a crash and could miss qualifying for this weekend's Snetterton round.

Jordan suffered mild concussion in the opening practice session after going off at Riches and will skip the second practice session to undergo precautionary checks.

The 25-year-old, who had just set the session's fourth-fastest time when he crashed, will return to the circuit for further assessment from the championship's medical team.

His participation in qualifying is also under threat by the damage the crash caused to the rear of his Eurotech Honda Civic, which is undergoing repairs at the track.

He would still be allowed to contest the three races on Sunday even if he misses qualifying, having completed seven laps in FP1.

If he does, Jordan will not have to serve a grid penalty in the first encounter.

He successfully overturned his appeal against the 10-place drop he was originally given following contact with Fabrizio Giovanardi in the final race at Croft.
