Jor­dan set to wow at Good­wood Fes­ti­val

Motor Sport News - - Sporting Scene -

World Ral­ly­cross podium fin­isher An­drew Jor­dan will drive an EKS Audi S1 Su­per­car at the Good­wood Fes­ti­val of Speed next week.

The 2013 Bri­tish Tour­ing Car cham­pion raced for Mat­tias Ek­strom’s World RX team in Italy last sea­son and tested one of the squad’s Audi S1 Su­per­cars ear­lier this year in Ger­many.

The Swedish squad leads both the teams’ and driv­ers’ cham­pi­onship ta­bles in World RX af­ter five rounds.

“I’m re­ally ex­cited to be run­ning the Audi S1 up the hill. It’s such a fan­tas­tic event to be part of, where fans get up close with a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent cars like nowhere else in the world,” said Jor­dan. “I think the ral­ly­cross car will be one of, if not the most ex­cit­ing cars to watch. It will be nice to drive it with no pres­sure and to just en­joy putting on a show.”

Team owner and lead driver Mat­tias Ek­strom is un­able to join Jor­dan at the event due to clash­ing DTM com­mit­ments.

“For me and the whole team, it’s a huge hon­our to take part in this amaz­ing fes­ti­val,” he said. Bri­tish World RX driver Liam Do­ran is also ex­pected to take part.
