Jordan drives second Saab at Superprix

British rallycross driver Andrew Jordan has concluded a deal to drive the second Per Eklund Saab 9-3 at the 2006 Rallycross Superprix.

Jordan drives with a Ford Focus at the MSA British Rallycross Championship. He currently standing 3th place overall.

Ex European Rallycross Champion, Will Gollop has put together a deal for Andrew Jordan (from Sutton Coldfield) to race Per Eklund’s second Saab 9_3 in the 2006 Shannon Holdings Rallycross Superprix at Croft Circuit on October 28th & 29th. Jordan had been planning to use the Ford Focus in the event, but Gollop is away on holiday visiting his son on the weekend of the Superprix.

Andrew stated:"I would like to thank Will for putting together the deal for me to race the Saab at the Rallycross Superprix. I am looking forward to working with ex European Rallycross Champion, Per Eklund at the event and I certainly won’t be there just to make up the numbers. I want to take home the Superprix winners trophy. My first opportunity to drive the car will be at the Superprix media day at Croft next week, which will allow me to draw on Per's experience with the car."

The Saab will be run under the Canterbury Saab banner at the event, together with sponsors Bill Gwynne, John Guest and Pirtek. Andrew is hoping to continue with Gollop next season, taking in selected rounds of the 2007 European Rallycross Championship.
