Eddie Jordan stars in BBC America's automotive series "Top Gear."

Eddie Jordan is an Irish former racing driver, team owner and entrepreneur. As a champion of young talent, a host of drivers owe their breaks to Eddie, including Michael Schumacher and Eddie Irvine. Having suffered a number of major accidents whilst competing in racing, Eddie retired to set up his Jordan team in 1980. The team went on to be champions in Formula 3 with Johnny Herbert in 1987, Formula 3000 in 1989 with Jean Alesi — and in 1990 Eddie established Jordan Grand Prix and entered Formula 1.

He sold Jordan Grand Prix in January 2005 and has since developed a portfolio of business interests, while also presenting the BBC's coverage of Formula 1. He has been inducted into the Irish Motorsport Hall of Fame and in 2012 he was awarded an honorary OBE by Her Majesty the Queen in recognition of his services to charity and motor racing.
