Historic TVR Griffith for the Jordans
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.
