Back To Where It All Began

The Grampian Kart Club, based at the Boyndie 'Drome Circuit near Banff, Aberdeenshire was where it all began for Jordan and Harry - where they first watched a live race together, where Jordan drove a kart for the first time and where the team began racing.

In 2000, after the team's first full season, Jordan was awarded the Caley trophy by the club as the most promising junior driver, which he collected at the GKC awards night that year.

18 years later and the team were invited back at the awards night as special guests, Jordan giving the keynote speech of the evening and the formula ford itself giving the event some unique flair.

"The Grampian Kart Club holds a very special place in my heart"

"To be invited back here to where our racing journey started, 18 years after coming for the first time, is a genuine honour for me personally." said Jordan.

"It's quite a surreal feeling starting up in front of everyone when I can still very clearly remember being a little boy in the audience, just starting out on a journey that we could never have imagined would involve us racing in the country's National single-seater series as we are today."

"I'm so grateful to the club for inviting us, and also for everything they have done throughout our racing career to help and support my development as a driver. The Grampian Kart Club holds a very special place in my heart, and always will do."
