‘EJ’ signs up for L-B

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Ed­die Jor­dan is com­pet­ing in the Lon­don to Brighton Veteran Car Run on 6 Novem­ber. The for­mer racer team owner and now

Top Gear pre­sen­ter will drive a 1902 Benz Spi­der, one of two cars be­ing en­tered by Mercedes-Benz Clas­sic.

The Spi­der was orig­i­nally found buried un­der a pile of coal in Ire­land. Manuel Müller from M-B Clas­sic says: ‘It is a fit­ting ve­hi­cle for Ed­die. Jor­dan’s F1 team in­cluded Ger­man driv­ers such as Michael Schu­macher, Ralf Schu­macher and Heinz-Har­ald Frentzen, who all have links to Mercedes-Benz.’

This year’s event will mark the 130th an­niver­sary of the in­ven­tion of the car and will pay tribute to both Got­tlieb Daim­ler and Karl Benz. www.vet­er­an­car­run.com
