Former British Touring Car champion Andrew Jordan has become the latest star name to confirm his participation in the 73rd Goodwood Members’ Meeting on 21-22 March.

Jordan, 25, will share a 1979-spec Patrick Motorsport-liveried Mini 1275 GT, prepared by Swiftune, in the Gerry Marshall Trophy, which is held in honour of the tin-top cult hero and will feature Group 1 production saloons of 1970-82.

His co-driver will be car entrant Nick Swift, who beat a plethora of more powerful Rover SD1s, Ford Capris and Chevrolet Camaros to finish fourth overall in the Gerry Marshall Trophy at last year’s 72nd Members’ Meeting with Jason Stanley.

Although this will be Jordan’s Members’ Meeting debut, the Midlands driver has competed at Goodwood before at the Revival Meeting twice; most notably last year, when he raced an Austin A40 to second in the St Mary’s Trophy at the Revival with his father Mike.

Jordan joins fellow star drivers Steve Soper, Rob Huff, Jochen Mass, Anthony Reid, Nicolas Minassian, Emanuele Pirro, Rob Austin and Patrick Watts as confirmed for the event. The Members’ Meeting recreates the relaxed and intimate culture of club racing at Goodwood in the 1950s and ‘60s, with access-all-areas for all visitors and Goodwood’s largest-ever party on the Saturday night, culminating in a spectacular fireworks display. Among the on-track highlights will be high-speed demonstrations of more than 20 high-airbox Formula 1 cars of the early-1970s and a race exclusively for pre-1967 Porsche 911s.
