The 24 year old from Leeds will race for a second season alongside Twice Champion Jason Plato, as he looks to build on a highly successful debut year. In 2013, Tordoff finished as Top Rookie in the Championship, 6th overall, beaten only by the five past champions also competing in the highly competitive championship. Tordoff scored his maiden pole position and win at Snetterton Race Circuit, Norfolk in August and secured a further 6 Podium finishes.

Tordoff will once again be supported by the KX Akademy as he retains his place from 2013. In association with Tesco’s Energy Drink: KX Energy, the Akademy will support 5 drivers throughout the 2014 season in various championships across the BTCC support packages. The drivers receive tuition, advice and promotion, as well as funding towards their chosen championship.

Sam commented, “I am absolutely delighted to return to MG KX Momentum Racing and to the KX Akademy. This outcome is the perfect scenario and the continuation I have of keeping the same people around me for 2014 will no doubt be highly beneficial.

“My goal for the 2014 season is to return to the BTCC for a shot at the title. 2013 was a learning year where I gained invaluable experience, began to understand an NTGC car and adapt to the race craft. I will now return to the BTCC as a better driver to fight for wins and achieve consistency which will put me much closer to the championship battle.”

The 30-Round British Touring Car Championship is televised live on ITV4 and begins at Brands Hatch Race Circuit, Kent on the 29-30th March.
