Jordan to miss qualifying after practice crash

Reigning BTCC champion Andrew Jordan will miss qualifying after not being cleared to drive by doctors.

The Pirtek driver returned to the circuit after lunch. He had been to hospital for precautionary checks after going backwards into the barrier at Riches in this morning's first practice session.

It means only 30 cars will take part in the session. Jordan will have a further medical examination tomorrow morning to determine whether he will be allowed to race.

If passed fit he will be at the back of the grid for the first race.

Drivers penalised after race one

Fabrizio Giovanardi is racing under appeal in the second race at Croft today. The stewards penalised him for contact with Aron Smith, and he would have been sent to the back of the grid due to it being his third penalty of the season.

However the team appealed and the Italian will start from 12th.

Andrew Jordan was also penalised for an incident with Matt Neal. They swap positions on the grid for round 14.
