Oh yes; Supercars I believe so and NASCAR I know so. In fact a young man, Justin Haley, was a surprise winner at Daytona last month. In a pay to drive ride. A good chunk of the cash came from a backer (Fraternal Order of Eagles) but the family contributed too.

Absolutely. And Pirtek involvement with the Jordans goes back to when AJs dad raced. So it was Mike who originally built the relationship and struck a deal.

I hope he finds a way to stay as he is quality. Being second to Colin Turkington is a damn fine achievement.

It seems the Pirtek backing was that crucial for him. Canít remember though if he had any on his car when he drove for the works Vauxhall team in 09?

Despite being a works team, AJ runs under a separate banner from Colin and Tom, does that say something?

Jordan had minor Pirtek sponsorship in 2009, following the withdrawal of Eurotech who didn't run their car. Pirtek became title sponsor of Eurotech in 2010.

Yes I do remember the original plan was for Eurotech to run it independently with assistance from 888

Yes Pirtek have been involved with MJ & AJ for quite a wile, and I am sure both the family and Pirtek have benefited greatly from the association.
In the past some have criticised Jack Goff and others for a 'sticker bomb' approach to BTCC sponsorship, but whereas having loads of smaller sponsors may not make the car look so pretty losing one or two 'names' maybe inconvenient but not a disaster. When you have one main sponsor however, losing them has a far more devastating effect. (I suppose it's the same as being in business & having lots of customers instead of just one major contract).

Reading about Jordan, he now says that he'll only be back in 2020 if he has a realistic title chance.
In what year previously has he said he's not got a chance?

I guess he means he has a budget that will get him a seat on the grid, but not enough for a seat with a team who have a championship contender car.
