Jordan King (born 26 February 1994 in Warwick) is a British racing driver from Harbury, Warwickshire. King currently participates in numerous disciplines at the highest levels, including both single-seaters and prototypes.

In 2019, King competed in the FIA Formula 2 Championship, FIA World Endurance Championship in LMP1 and LMP2, and the NTT IndyCar Series. He made debuts in both the Indianapolis 500 and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. He also tested a Formula E car.


Personal life

He attended Repton School in Derbyshire on a C. B. Fry scholarship. King is the son of former Sainsbury's CEO Justin King.[1]

King is also an avid fundraiser for Birmingham Children's Hospital, having raised over £8,500 in 2019 alone while cycling the North Coast 500. [2] In 2020, he plans to run the 84-mile Hadrian's Wall Path to continue his fundraising efforts.

Career

Formula Renault 2.0 UK

King's early racing career began in karting before he moved to open-wheel racing at the end of 2010. He began driving in Formula Renault UK, starting in the Formula Renault UK Winter Series before he began the main championship in 2011.

FIA Formula Two Championship

In 2009, aged only fifteen, King tested a Formula Two car. He drove four races in Formula Palmer Audi at the Silverstone round in 2010, managing to get a podium and impressing series boss Jonathan Palmer. In 2011, he has signed up for three rounds of the Formula Two championship,[3][4] at Spa-Francorchamps, the Nürburgring and Brands Hatch during the Formula Renault UK summer break. King will be the youngest driver to take part in the modern era of the series.

GP2 Series/FIA Formula 2 Championship

In February 2015, it was confirmed King would move up to GP2, signing with Racing Engineering, alongside Alexander Rossi, for 2015, where he finished twelfth overall.[5] He remained with the team for the following season, where he claimed two victories and finished seventh overall.

In 2017, King switched to MP Motorsport for a third season of the sport.[6]

For 2019, King returned with the same team partnered with Indian driver Mahaveer Raghunathan. King missed the Monaco round due to his participation in the 2019 Indianapolis 500, with Artem Markelov serving as his substitute. King scored two podium finished during the season, claiming the 3rd position in the feature race at Baku and 2nd in the sprint race at Monza. He had 15 top 10 finishes in his 20 races and completed 98.7% of all laps.

King holds two F2 track records, both set in 2017, at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps and Autodromo Nazionale di Monza.

Formula One

King was signed as a development driver by the Manor Marussia team for the 2015 season, being retained by the squad, renamed Manor Racing, in 2016.[7] He made his début in a Formula One session when he drove for Manor during free practice at the 2016 United States Grand Prix.[8]

IndyCar Series

In 2018, King signed with Ed Carpenter Racing as a part-time driver in the No. 20 car, sharing driving duties with owner Ed Carpenter. Carpenter started the ovals, while King started the 11 road and street circuit races. In his IndyCar Series debut, the season opening Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, he set the track record in qualifying, made the Firestone Fast 6 and took the lead of the race on only the fifth lap. His second Fast 6 appearance came at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway during qualifications for the INDYCAR Grand Prix. He also paced the field during the only international stop in 2018, the Honda Indy Toronto. King advanced out of the first round of qualifications in half of the possible races over the course of the season.

King returned to Indy car racing in 2019 to make his Indianapolis 500 debut with Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing. The 2019 Indianapolis 500 was his first-ever oval race. He successfully qualified his No. 42 on the first day, locking in the 26th starting position.[9]

FIA World Endurance Championship

King also made his debut in prototype racing in 2019. He signed with Jackie Chan DC Racing x Jota for the 1000 Miles of Sebring, the 6th round of the 2018-19 Super Season. King secured the LMP2 victory in his first endurance race[10] and subsequently finished the season with the team. He competed in his first 24 Hours of Le Mans in June.

King has competed in two rounds of the 2019-20 Super Season with Team LNT Ginetta Cars in the LMP1 class.[11]
