Paul Jordan

Paul Jordan was just a teenager when he made his debut in the 125cc British Championship in 2008 but he was soon winning races and eventually took a superb third place overall, following this up a year later with sixth overall.

A move to the Supersport class followed in 2010 but Jordan soon found his career impacted upon by financial restrictions.

As his short circuit ambitions were cut short, he dipped his toe into the roads initially in the 125cc class where he took a podium at the Ulster Grand Prix. A good friendship with William Dunlop also helped his transition from the circuits to the roads.

With his knowledge and confidence increasing at both the Ulster and the North West 200, the results began to come with the Supersport class taking his focus as the two-stroke class disappeared. Inevitably, the Irish National road races were soon on his agenda and from 2014 onwards he’s been a regular winner and podium finisher across the classes.

His TT debut came in 2017 and it wasn’t without drama as poor weather and a spill at Glen Helen during practice severely hindered his progress. He did take a solid 19th in the Lightweight race though but it wasn’t until 2018 that he started to show his true colours with 123mph+ laps coming on his own 600cc Yamaha.

Further progress was made with Dafabet Devitt Racing in 2019 where two excellent top 12 finishes in the Supersport races were the highlight but again the inclement weather prevented him showing his true potential, particularly in the Superbike races. 

However, a switch to the Manx-based Prez Racing team in 2022 allowed him to deliver what many thought possible with a dream podium finish coming in the Supertwin race. Tenth and 11th in the Supersport races also proved his worth and he’ll be looking to transfer those results into the big bikes races in the immediate years ahead.

He continued with the team in 2023 and whilst reliability issues preventing a repeat of his Supertwin performance, he improved in the Supersport and 1000cc classes. Indeed, two excellent seventh place finishes were taken in the former and although he couldn’t crack the top ten on the relatively unflavoured R1 Yamaha, he did up his pace to an impressive 128.271mph.
