born:2001, Sussex, UK

 

Jordan told his Mum and Dad he wanted to be a racing driver after visiting the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2012.

His Dad, encouraging his enthusiasm, took him to Thruxton race track to have a go. With no prior experience, Jordan sat at the wheel of a Honda Cadet kart for four training sessions. By the end of fourth session he had broken the lap record, the instructor advised his Dad to get him into racing as soon as possible. Jordan won his first championship he participated in at Buckmore Park and immediately progressed into The Super One British Championship. However…

Jordan wanted to race cars and at the age of just 13, Jordan attended the Skip Barber School of Racing in the USA. On his first stay and first time ever in a car, Jordan was 2nd fastest out of 24 classmates. On his second visit, he went fastest and from there his US racing journey began.

In May 2015 Jordan turned 14 years old and became the youngest professional racing driver in the world, he was now able to race in the US F1600 National Championship. Missing the first six races of the 2015 season due to age restrictions, Jordan took the Championship by storm, winning 7 races from the remaining 15 and 10 podiums in all.

Not only breaking the record number of wins in the series history but also becoming the youngest ever British Racing Driver to win in a single seater.

2016 was a further year spent in the US, still only 14 years old Jordan became the youngest ever on the podium in the Mazda Road to Indy USF2000 program in his first race weekend at his first street circuit in St. Petersburg Florida, however financial issues within the team combined with mechanical issues meant Jordan could not fulfil his potential and brought the season to an early close.

British F3 beckoned for the 2017 season. At 15 however, meant he couldn't compete until reaching his next birthday in May. Finally able to compete at Snetterton, Rd.3, saw Jordan taking an impressive Pole and Victory in race two with the Douglas Motorsport outfit. He went on to win again in Rd.7 at the same circuit in August, before finishing off the season in style at the final meeting at Donington, with yet another victory.
