The Eurotech Racing driver fought from twenty-fourth in wet conditions to end the race in ninth, taking the title by seven points to race winner Gordon Shedden. Jason Plato finished third overall in the title hunt – having come home in his MG KX Momentum Racing in tenth.
Shedden crossed the line ahead of Team HARD’s Jack Goff, who achieved his first ever podium position of second in the RCIB Insurance Racing Insignia. Mat Jackson rounded out the podium ahead of Colin Turkington – who fought back to finish fourth after his earlier calamities.
An opening lap incident for Sam Tordoff, which saw him hit the barriers, saw him fall down the order however recovered to finish twelfth ahead of Matt Neal – who started his race from the back of the field.
Lea Wood took his final Jack Sear’s win of the year ahead of Shaun Hollamby and Liam Griffin.
Jordan – who showed just how much the championship means to him by breaking down in tears on the slow-down lap – received his winning trophy for not only the overall championship but also the Independent championship from Series Director Alan Gow and will now start the celebrations alongside the Pirtek Racing crew.
So that’s it for 2013. It’s been an interesting and exciting season which went down to the wire.
All of us at Girl Racer send our biggest congratulations to Andrew Jordan and the entire Eurotech Racing team.
