Jordan scoops award

Jordan: I want to thank everyone in Motorsport Ireland for this award which I am truly delighted and honoured to receive.

Eddie Jordan was presented with the Motorsport Ireland Hall of Fame Award this week.

Jordan scooped the honour for everything that he has contributed to motorsport both in Ireland and internationally over the past 40 years.

“I am absolutely delighted to accept this prestigious honour,” said the former F1 team boss and now BBC Sport F1 analyst alongside David Coulthard and anchorman Jake Humphrey.

“I have had a long association with Motorsport Ireland and it is 20 years ago now since the F1 team started and I am proud that we had so many Irish people centrally involved with the team success.

“I hope we will see a second Irish Grand Prix team sometime in the future. The team always had great support from Ireland and I think everyone was proud of the highlights – the four Grand Prix wins – the battle for the Constructors and drivers titles in 1999 and providing the debut drives for Michael Schumacher and others.

“I want to thank everyone in Motorsport Ireland for this award which I am truly delighted to receive.”
