Eddie Jordan

Motorsport Mogul & TV Presenter

Motorsport mogul Eddie Jordan is one of the most prominent figures in Formula One. A former team boss, Eddie has combined his love for motorsport with sharp business nous to ensure he remains at the forefront of the highly glamorous sport.  A wonderful motorsport speaker, Eddie enjoys sharing his enthusiasm for the sport with others and is always happy to answer fans’ questions, making him a highly desirable after dinner speaker.

Entering the Irish Kart Championship in 1971, Eddie would end the season victorious and spark a move to Formula Ford just a few years later in 1974. Setting up Eddie Jordan Racing in 1979, Jordan would go on to sign British Motorsport great Martin Brundle and Johnny Herbert to run in a number of competitions including the British Formula Three Championship.

Eddie’s eye for talent has seen some of the most successful people get their break or drive for Jordan’s teams. Notable drivers have included Damon Hill, Michael Schumacher, Ayrton Senna, Rubens Barichello and Jean Alesi. Founding the Jordan Grand Prix team in 1991, Eddie gave a young Michael Schumacher his debut in Formula One.

By 1998, the team had made a huge impression on the heavyweights of the sport, finishing first at the Belgian Grand Prix with drivers Damon Hill and Ralf Schumacher. Discussing the trials and tribulations of owning a Formula One team, Eddie is a compelling sports speaker who can give a clear idea of how business and sport comes together.

Selling the team to Midland Group in 2006, the team ownership has passed through hands to Force India, who now operates out of Jordan’s old premises at Silverstone. Eddie joined the BBC as a TV Presenter in 2009 to become one of their leading analysts for F1 coverage. Famed for spotting deals and driver swaps before they happen, Eddie has become the man to listen out for whenever big news is speculated.

Known for his love of Rock & Roll, Eddie plays as a drummer in his own band, Eddie & The Robbers. With a huge knowledge of hospitality, Eddie is an ideal event host and motorsport speaker, ensuring guests gain an insight into the fast paced world of Formula One as well as some rumours currently spreading around the paddock.
