Best Wishes For A Quick Recovery Mike Jordan
The BTCC finale at Silverstone today (Sunday, October 14) included a very nasty accident, involving Mike Jordan and Jason Plato.

Plato's SEAT slowed with a broken driveshaft, and Jordan's Honda speared into the barrier at Woodcote in avoidance, the accident also involving James Thompson.

Thankfully, the news later today is much more encouraging that the initial bulletin. Jordan was rushed to hospital by helicopter, but the latest news is that he is groggy, and has some broken ribs. He's a tough man, the former British GT Champion.

David Lord witnessed the whole accident, but we're reluctant to post any images at the moment, for reasons of tact and human decency. We're sure that all his GT pals will be wishing him all the best for a fast recovery.

Update, 09.00 Monday October 16
This is very good news.

Mike Jordan (on Eurotech's website): "I'd just like to express my heartfelt thanks to everyone who helped me following my BTCC accident at Silverstone. In particular, Dr Paul Trafford, the medical crews, rescue crews and marshals at the scene and the Coventry and Warwickshire air ambulance. Their professional care was outstanding.

"I'd also like to thank Alan Gow, Bob Kettleboro and Dennis Carter from the BTCC organising team and apologise for messing up their timetable.

"I'm feeling a bit groggy and my ribs are sore, but I hope to be out of hospital in a day or two. I remember hitting the back of Jason Plato and then waking up in hospital! It was no one's fault, just one of those classic racing accidents.

"Finally, thanks to all the teams, drivers and fans who have shown an interest in my condition!"

Best regards
Mike Jordan
