Andrew Jordan and Team BMW have split on the eve of the 2020 British Touring Car Championship.
2013 Champion Jordan joined the West Surrey Racing run squad in 2017, taking 10 victories in that time and finishing runner-up to team mate Colin Turkington by just two points in 2019.
Both Jordan and BMW confirmed the news earlier today which leaves BMW with Turkington and Tom Oliphant as their confirmed drivers for the upcoming season.
On social media, Team Principal Dick Bennetts said: “AJ has made a huge contribution to our BTCC success since 2017.
“Coming so close to winning last year’s title and we’re sorry to be losing him.
“On behalf of all at WSR and Team BMW, we thank him for our seasons together and wish him well.
Jordan also confirmed the news with his statement: “After much thought and consideration, I have made the difficult decision to not compete in the BTCC 2020 season with Team BMW.
“As I’m sure too many of you can attest to, the current climate has impacted all of us more than we could have ever anticipated.
“Unfortunately, this has placed me in a position where my head had to overrule my heart, and the tough decision was made to not compete this season.
There has been no confirmation who will replace Jordan
