With the championship now past the halfway stage and eight out of twelve rounds completed – time for an update on Jordans season so far.
Superstock 600 is one of the most competitive race series in the UK, being used as a stepping stone to full superbike racing, and by the big teams looking for the next Shakey Burns.The race commentators refer to the riders in this series as “axe murderers” – a fair reflection of the caring attitude displayed as 30 plus bikes head flat out into the first corner.
Jordan has qualified for all but one of the races so far, the exception being at Knockhill on June 16th. This is one of the few race meetings held in Scotland and attracts all the local racers who only ever ride at Knockhill. The entrance for the event swells to more than 50, all competing for the 30 race places available. Having never ridden this circuit before Jordan failed to make the qualifying lap time and drove 600 miles to spectate.
The brief for this season has always been for Jordan to stay on the bike, finish each race and learn the tracks. This has been achieved, with a 21st place finish at Oulton Park on August 11th being his best result so far.
With good luck and good weather Jordan can maintain this progress and hopefully score his first championship points over the four remaining races.
