Jordan King, who hails from Warwickshire, will make his debut at the iconic Indianapolis 500 in 2019 after signing with Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing for the race in May. 

In addition to racing in the Indy 500, Jordan will also be competing in the remainder of the 2019 World Endurance Championship races, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans, with the Jackie Chan DC Racing team. Jordan will also be re-uniting with former team MP Motorsport to take on this year's FIA Formula 2 Championship, to complete an action-packed calendar for the Brit.

The 2019 season has already started in successful fashion for Jordan, claiming victory on his sportscar debut at the 1000 Miles of Sebring and claiming a podium finish in Baku in the FIA Formula 2 Championship.

The 2018 season saw Jordan make the switch in 2018 from FIA Formula Two to IndyCar as he made his debut in the series as the road and street course driver for Ed Carpenter Racing. Jordan enjoyed a stellar rookie season in INDYCAR. Demonstrating his pace from day one, Jordan set a new lap record at St Petersburg - his first competitive outing in the Ed Carpenter Racing #20 car. Jordan also held the race lead at St Petersburg and Toronto and was a two-time Fast 6 qualifier too.

2017 saw Jordan compete in the newly rebranded FIA Formula 2 Championship for MP Motorsport after moving into the series in 2015. His campaign got off to a great start as he secured ten points finishes from the first eleven races of the season - leading Jordan to 11th in the Drivers' Championship. In his three seasons in the Formula One feeder series, Jordan notched up over 60 races with two wins, six podiums and three fastest laps.

His success on the GP2 series has been noted by those in the highest level of motorsport, with Jordan having spent two years as a development driver for the Manor Marussia F1 Team across 2015 and 2016.

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 the winner of the 2015 FIA Institute Driver of The Year within the global motorsport governing body’s Young Driver Excellence Academy.

Three wins and eight podium finishes helped the young Brit to claim the prestigious British Formula 3 Championship in his debut season in 2013. The following year Jordan recorded a further seven podium finishes on the European F3 series. This rapid progress saw the British driver advance to the F1 proving ground of GP2 in 2015 where he has been impressing ever since.

Having started out in karting in 2005, Jordan immediately tasted success on the national, European and international scene before progressing to single-seaters in 2010.
