Jordan Love’s connection with motorsport is very much rooted in his DNA, thanks largely to his father who used to race touring cars and continues to have a passion for racing. And that connection extends to Jordan’s younger brother, Aaron, who is storming Australia’s go-kart scene.
Jordan explains, “I started go-karting in Australia and that is where Peter Thompson spotted me and organised a few test days in a formula car.” That encounter with Peter would see Jordan expand his horizons to Asia as he stamped his authority on the AsiaCup Series in 2015, winning 15 out of the 16 races, leaving the rest of his competitors in his wake. Jordan explains his secret, “I give everything, I do 110 per cent effort. I drive my heart out at every race.”
When asked about his ambitions, Mr. 110% has already marked a clear path as he elaborates, “I want to be climbing the ladder, starting with F4/SEA. That is the plan and I want the ladder to take me to Europe. I chose to compete in the F4/SEA championship because all the cars are the same and there are good tracks on the calendar.”
Despite his victorious streak, Jordan keeps his feet grounded and recalls as his fondest memory his first ever podium at the Sepang circuit in Malaysia. “The track is amazing and the circuit facilities are nice. If it is wet the racing can be a surprise. But it is not too bad.”
