Jordan King (born 26 February 1994 in Warwick) is a British racing driver from Harbury, Warwickshire. He attended Princethorpe College in Warwickshire, and is the son of former Sainsbury's CEO Justin King.[1]

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.

Formula Two

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,[2][3] 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

In February 2015, it was confirmed King would move up to GP2, signing with Racing Engineering, alongside Alexander Rossi, for 2015.[4]
