The 14-year-old Harbury ace arrived at Shenington leading the Super 1 Mini Max title chase and though he may have left again with an even greater advantage, it was not the most straightforward of weekends..........................................

Now Jordan has a blog: http://jordanking.wordpress.com/

"Repton School pupil Jordan King is one of this year’s favourites in the Minimax Super One (S1) National Kart Championship, the series the vast majority of the top British drivers have come through.

The 14-year-old is one of the favourites for 2008 in the Minimax Super One (SI) National Kart Championship, the key series that the vast majority of top British racing come through, after finishing 12th in last year’s event.

Now well into his third year competing, Jordan currently drives a Tony Kart – a 125cc vehicle that can achieve speeds of around 80mph.

His team brought it into Repton to allow his Year 9 friends to have a look at the vehicle, see him drive it and learn a little more about his involvement. Repton School head teacher Robert Holroyd said: “Everyone was looking forward to seeing Jordan in his kart.

“We are thrilled at the excellent progress he is making and are pleased to support his involvement in the sport.” "

More Jordan News (full article here): http://kartlink.com/2008/king-%e2%80%98 ... ing-glory/

"Jordan King came agonisingly close to triumphing in one of the most prestigious events on the British karting calendar – and though he eventually had to settle for the bottom step of the rostrum instead, he had nevertheless been able once more to demonstrate his devastating pace. The young Harbury ace – a regular front-runner in BRDC Stars of Tomorrow – warmed up for his latest outing by participating in a two-day fitness training course at Bath University ...................First, second and third place finishes in his opening three heats – from distinctly lowly grid positions in two of them and with fastest lap in the latter to boot – marked an encouraging way to begin, but then matters took a turn for the worse..................... Ultimately coming home third, whilst a podium finish may ordinarily be reason for cheer, given his burgeoning reputation as one of the UK’s very finest young motorsport talents, and the fact that he and Bowyer had proven to be in a class of their own throughout the weekend, Jordan knew a better result had slipped through his fingers........."

King takes Super 1 fight to the wire

"JORDAN KING entered the penultimate meeting on the 2008 national Super 1 Championship calendar at Rowrah with the aim of preventing rival Callum Bowyer from clinching the laurels - and he fulfilled it to near-perfection.
The Warwickshire ace - a regular front-runner in BRDC Stars of Tomorrow - has duelled with Bowyer all season for the honour of becoming British Mini Max Champion, and arrived at the challenging Cumbrian circuit 30 points adrift of his quarry........................................................."

Gritty King ends season with Lewis Hamilton award

Gritty King ends season with Lewis Hamilton award
http://kartlink.com/2008/gritty-king-en ... ton-award/

"Jordan King showcased both his raw pace and superb overtaking prowess in the final meeting of the 2008 BRDC Stars of Tomorrow Championship – in the process earning himself an award sponsored by Formula 1 World Championship leader Lewis Hamilton.

The young Harbury ace is a regular front-runner in Stars’ – the same series that first discovered Hamilton and set him on the fast track to where he is now – and headed to Shenington in Oxfordshire with one set objective…victory.

“I was no longer in with a chance of winning the title,” he explained, “so I just wanted to do the best I could and see how far up that would move me in the championship. I’ve driven quite a few laps at Shenington in my career; I like the track – it’s a very quick circuit – and I’m usually fast round there, so I was definitely feeling confident going into the weekend.

“We went out for a couple of sessions on the Friday, but as most were extremely wet and we were expecting it to be a dry weekend, we decided to not do much running and simply save the tyres and engine instead. When we were on the track, though, the kart felt really good, we had the power where we needed it and we were really fast.”

That much would be corroborated the following day, when a trio of heat races sensationally yielded two victories and a runner-up spot amongst a field of some 36 competitors. After simply driving away from the opposition in the first outing, Jordan displayed phenomenal speed in heat two to storm his way through the pack from 21st on the grid and steal the win from pole-sitter Paul hardy on the very last tour – with a fastest lap time more than three tenths of a second quicker than anyone else to boot – before finishing second from 13th in heat three, barely a second away from the race-winner. It was, by any standards, a spectacular set of results........................................................................"
