British Racing Car Driver

British racing rising star Jordan King began karting in 2005, competing in national, European and World Championships. He moved to single-seaters in 2010, rising through the traditional junior ranks and racking up pole positions, race wins and podium finishes. He won the prestigious British Formula 3 title in 2013 with the crack Carlin squad, adding his name to a roster of legendary names from the past. Having achieved seven podium finishes in the European F3 series in 2014, he moved up to acknowledged F1 proving ground GP2 for 2015 – with the frontrunning Racing Engineering team – determined to fulfil his ambition of becoming a grand prix racer. King achieved his first GP2 podium at Spa-Francorchamps. He’s already caught the eye of the Manor Marussia F1 team, which has put its faith in his ability by signing him as a development driver. As well as concentrating on the next stage of his career, King is part of the FIA Institute and MSA Team UK driver-training programmes – two set-ups that actively promote and encourage the talent of tomorrow. He was named winner of the 2015 FIA Institute Driver of The Year within the global motorsport governing body’s Young Driver Excellence Academy.wickshire
