Pirtek Racing unveils 2012 BTCC livery

Pirtek Racing has unveiled the liveries for the pair of NGTC Honda Civics that Andrew Jordan and Jeff Smith will campaign in the 2012 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship. The cars were shown in public for the first time during the pre-season media day at Silverstone  (19 March).The sensational livery will keep Pirtek Racing firmly in the spotlight as the BTCC once again enjoys a superb TV package, with extensive live coverage on ITV4 as well as highlights programmes on ITV1. “The new livery is going to be familiar to fans of Pirtek Racing, but even brighter than before,” said Andrew Jordan. “People expect the Pirtek cars to stand out!”Jeff’s car will again run under the Pirtek Racing banner and will be finished in Pirtek blue, but with the branding of his Industrial Control Distributors company.The two new Pirtek cars have recently been completed by Team Dynamics and the initial reaction to the cars has been very positive indeed. “The potential in the new car is clear and we should be able to hit the ground running at the first races of the season at Brands Hatch.”After a busy morning of interviews and filming at Silverstone, the afternoon was set aside for official testing and Andrew was immediately among the pacesetters, ending the day fifth fastest overall. Importantly, he lapped within a tenth of a second of Matt Neal and Gordon Shedden in their identical cars.Andrew and the Pirtek team will continue a busy testing programme at Donington Park and Rockingham this week in the final build up to the opening races of the season at Brands Hatch on 1 April.
