Biography

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Michel Jourdain Jr. page on 8 May 2020, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

Michel Jourdain Jr. is a Mexican racecar driver, best known for winning two Champ Car races in 2003.

Jourdain started racing cars in the Mexican Formula Junior series at the age of 12. He then moved to the Mexican Formula K and Formula 2 series.

In 1996, Jourdain ran several races in the Indy Racing League (IRL) and the CART (now Champ Car) series, including the Indy 500. At the age of 19, he became one of the youngest drivers to race in both Champ Car and the Indy 500. Jourdain raced full-time in Champ Car from 1997–2004. In his early years, he was largely considered a back marker; however, after joining the Rahal team in 2002, he became a championship contender. Jourdain ended his Champ Car career in 2004 with 1 pole, 2 wins, and 9 podium (top three) finishes.
