Jordan, who is currently in the thick of an intense title fight with teammate Turkington as admitted looking at options in Europe and further afield as he bids to win his second title at the same time as securing his future. Jordan is currently also competing in the 2019 Titans RX series and hasn’t ruled out a move to GT Racing or the Porsche Carrera Cup GB with his family-run Jordan Racing team.
