Eddie Jordan Net Worth
Eddie Jordan Net Worth: Eddie Jordan is an Irish former racing driver and business guru who has a net worth of $475 million. Eddie Jordan obtained his net worth by being the founder and owner of the Jordan Grand Prix. He is currently the lead analyst for F1 coverage on the BBC. Born Edmund Jordan on March 30, 1948, in Ireland, he became probably best known as Formula One's most charismatic team boss. As of today, Eddie aka EJ is the lead analyst on BBC's Grand Prix coverage. When Eddie first got acquainted with racing, he had just started his career as a clerk at the Bank of Ireland. It all happened during a strike in Dublin as he decided to spend his days-off at the island of Jersey, where he took part in a kart race for the first time. The adrenaline-rising experience made him buy a kart. Shortly after, he won his first season in the Irish Kart Championship. It's true he enjoyed racing, but he gave up the thrill in order to manage other drivers' careers via his own team. Being the man behind the rise of a great number of forthcoming Grand Prix drivers such as Damon Hill and Martin Brundle, Jordan moved into Formula One at the end of the 1980s. He let Michael Schumacher make his first drive, even though he lost him to Benetton in a dispute over his contract. In the late 2000s, Eddie Jordan's team reached its peak as it was picking up podium finishes and winning races. But due to finance and legal battles, Eddie was forced to sell his team in January of 2005. While the team has since endured under the guise of Force India, Eddie has become one of three key presenters of the BBC's Grand Prix coverage together with Jake Humphrey and David Coulthard. What's more, he is involved in numerous investment companies as well as in other business ventures.
