Neck on the block time: Andrew Jordan is going to win the British Touring Car Championship this season. Everything is right for him to mount a charge that will give him the ultimate prize at the end of the 30-race campaign, which kicks off at Brands Hatch this weekend.
The 2013 champion, now a 19-time race winner in the BTCC, will return for his second season in the WSR BMW 125i M Sport. It is a machine he raced for the first time last year and he won only one less race than his championship-chasing team-mate Colin Turkington.
Had it not been for a cruel electrical failure at Snetterton, where he was cruising to first place, he would have matched Turkington's victory count. There was also the Thruxton weekend in May, a track where Captain Car Control Jordan is normally king. He was all at sea with the set-up of the car and couldn't get it hooked up, which cost him a fistful of points.
