Jordan to head Rally Ireland
- 28th February 2007, 8:27am
Jordan Grand Prix founder, Eddie Jordan, and former rugby international, Trevor Ringland, have been appointed as Chairman and Deputy Chairman of Rally Ireland, the Irish round of the World Rally Championship which will take place in November this year.
Dublin-born Jordan started his career as a driver in karting and Formula 3 prior to setting up Jordan Formula 1 in the early 1990’s, where he scored some considerable success, including giving Michael Schumacher his first Formula One outing.
“This is a huge sporting opportunity for Ireland,” said Jordan. “We have a wealth of talent in motorsport , both as competitors and organisers, and being part of WRC will allow us to develop that talent for the future.
“Rally Ireland also gives us the opportunity to take a fresh approach to the planning and delivery of World Championship events and I believe the plans and strategies we are putting into place are creative, innovative and will become models of good practice within motorsport and beyond,” he concluded.
