The 2013 title winner will be embarking on a third straight season with the WSR run car.

Jordan – who has won 20 races in touring cars during his career admitted there was plenty to look forward to this time around.

He said: “I’m delighted to stay with BMW Pirtek Racing for a third season.

“WSR are a fantastic team who always extract the maximum from the BMW no matter what circuit we’re at, and the environment is perfectly set-up so that everybody can get as much out of each other as possible.

“I’ve won races in both my seasons here and last year was in title contention until the penultimate round, so that’s a really encouraging platform on which to build for 2019.

“I think the British Touring Car Championship is the best place to be for a touring car driver right now. The level of competition is higher than it’s ever been and we had a record number of winners last year.

“I can’t wait to get started at Brands Hatch in April.”

Team principal Dick Bennetts said Jordan had what it takes to repeat his efforts of 2013.

“He is a champion, pure and simple,” he said.

“Andrew was the best rear-wheel-drive qualifier last year and could easily have finished in the top three in the points had it not been for a couple of factors outside of his control that cost him more podiums.”
