His­toric TVR Grif­fith for the Jor­dans

Autosport (UK) - - CONTENTS -

FOR­MER BRI­TISH TOUR­ING Car cham­pion Andrew Jor­dan is build­ing a TVR Grif­fith to con­test se­lected his­toric events next sea­son.

The Jor­dan Rac­ing Team, which en­tered the his­toric arena in 2015, has built a num­ber of his­toric tour­ing cars, in­clud­ing the Jor­dan fam­ily’s suc­cess­ful Austin A40.

Now Jor­dan plans to build a ‘wide-body’ V8-en­gined TVR, with Nigel Reuben Rac­ing, to share with his fa­ther and fel­low BTCC race win­ner, Mike, in high-pro­file his­toric meet­ings for pre-1966 GT cars.

“We’ve got so many car builds on at the mo­ment, but this is for me and dad to do some rac­ing in,” said the 28-year-old, who con­firmed JRT is also ex­pand­ing its work­shop. “We’d like to do the Oul­ton Park Gold Cup, Clas­sic Day­tona and, de­pend­ing on dates, the Sil­ver­stone Clas­sic or Don­ing­ton Park. We want to cherry-pick some nice races.”

Mike Whi­taker, who shares cars with Jor­dan Sr, has scored many suc­cesses in his sim­i­lar Grif­fith, as well as the ‘nar­row­body’ ver­sion that won at the Good­wood Mem­bers’ Meet­ing.
