Andrew Jordan has won the 2013 British Touring Car Championship.
Jordan's win brings to a close a season that has seen several drivers take centre stage, leaving the outcome of the championship unpredictable at best.
At the start of the season, Jordan set the fastest lap time and started on pole position for the race. He faced continued attacks from Jason Plato, however, which ended in both drivers going off into the gravel on one of the final laps. Plato recovered first to take the lead ahead of Jordan, and also went on to win race two. Plato's success in winning both inaugural races was short lived, however, as Matt Neal won in race three.
Come the second round at Donington Park, Gordon Shedden took pole position, leading and winning the first race ahead of Andrew Jordan, with Matt Neal coming third. The second race of the day saw Plato and Neal celebrate their 400th and 500th BTCC races respectively. Jordan won the second race ahead of Plato and Shedden. The reversed grid in race three meant that Colin Turkington was able to take a much-deserved win.
Thruxton hosted the third round of the championship, with Jordan narrowly missing out on victory in the first race following a puncture. Matt Neal won the race, with Plato coming second and Tom Onslow-Cole coming third. Neal also won race two, having lead from the start. The third race of the day saw Plato suffer a puncture, meaning Shedden could take the win.
The first race of round four at Oulton Park saw a one-two victory for the MG KX Momentum Racing team, with Plato also winning race two. Race three saw a heavy battle between Rob Austin and Jeff Smith, with Jordan eventually out manoeuvring both cars to take the win.
