Come to the Dubai Motor Show and see the legend Eddie Jordan speak live!

Meet the Motoring Mogul Eddie Jordan on the 14th and 15th of November at 6pm

Eddie Jordan is a legend in the racing industry. A host of drivers owe their breaks to Eddie as a champion of young talent – former world champions Ayrton Senna, Michael Schumacher, Damon Hill and Nigel Mansell; and others like Alesi, Barrichello, Fisichella and Irvine. On November 14 and 15, you can see him live on Dubai Motor Show!

Eddie's unlikely introduction to motor racing happened in 1970 where he experienced kart racing for the first time. He then embarked on a driving career which saw him win karting and Formula Ford races. After suffering a number of major accidents Eddie retired from racing to set up his team in 1980 and began his now famous habit of finding young drivers and giving them a chance at success. 

 

 

 

Inspired by the success of his junior drivers, Eddie established Jordan Grand Prix in 1990 and entered Formula 1. Throughout the 1990’s Jordan was the only team to really break the monopoly on Formula 1 success held by Ferrari, Williams and McLaren. Rubens Barrichello secured the team’s first pole position and podium in 1994. In 1996 ex-World Champion Damon Hill joined the team. At the 1998 Belgian Grand Prix, Damon Hill and Ralf Schumacher’s finish in first and second place made history, as Jordan Grand Prix became the first team in the sport to win its maiden Formula 1 race with a 1-2. In 1999 Heinz-Harald Frentzen won the French and Italian GPs for Jordan and finished third in the World Championship. The team also won the Brazilian Grand Prix in 2003 with Giancarlo Fisichella and also remains one of only 5 current teams to have won multiple Grand Prix’s in the past 25 years.

Eddie has presented the BBC’s coverage of Formula 1 and has been a part of Top Gear from 2016. As well as being inducted into the Irish Motorsport Hall of Fame, on the 28th March 2012, Eddie was awarded an honorary OBE in recognition of his services to charity and motor racing.

 

Come to see him talk about the future of mobility but also tell many anecdotes gathered through more than 40 years of racing, on Thursday 14 and Friday 15 November. No true petrol head should miss this!
