King’s F2 season resumes at Spa
Date: 28 / 08 / 2019
Following the annual FIA Formula 2 summer break, Jordan King will now head to Spa, this weekend as the 2019 season resumes after the summer break.
Jordan has had a solid year of competition with MP Motorsport in the Formula 1 support series. He stood on the podium after coming third in the feature race at the demanding Baku Street Circuit and has only missed out on the top-ten places three times this season.
This weekend the 25-year-old will tackle one of the world’s most famous race tracks – the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. Jordan is no stranger to success at the circuit having made consecutive trips to the podium in 2015 and 2016 with two second-place finishes in the GP2 series.
Jordan has also contested in Spa in the FIA World Endurance Championship earlier this year in May when the Warwickshire-born driver competed in snowy conditions as he raced in only his second WEC event.
This weekend, however, a different challenge awaits as Jordan returns to the circuit to race his Formula Two machinery. The 4.352-mile track, that is one of the longest tracks on the F2 calendar, is a firm favourite amongst the drivers and the fans, and features the iconic Eau Rouge – Raidillon corner.
With a positive F2 campaign so far, Jordan will travel to Belgium searching for some more championship points to add to his 2019 total that has guided him to 10th in the standings.
“I always look forward to racing at Spa,” Jordan said ahead of the weekend. “It is a fantastic circuit to race at. It is technically challenging, but a lot of fun too. There are lots of opportunities for some overtaking to be done and I am excited to see what the races will bring.
“We were in a good place before the summer break, so I am hoping that we can continue the points-scoring momentum and progress further up the field.”
Jordan’s weekend will commence on Friday (30th August) with a practice session at 12:00 (BST) before qualifying follows at 15:55. Saturday’s feature race will start at 15:45, and the sprint race will get underway at 10:15 on Sunday.
