Mike started racing with a Morris Minor in Classic Saloons in 1979. He then took part in several part seasons of FF1600, FF2000 and Sports 2000. Money constraints prevented these from being full Championship assaults.

There was then a lean period of 3 seasons where Mike did not race. However, he made a come back in 1987 by winning the Porsche Pirelli Championship. He won the title again in 1991 and then switched to saloon cars and won the Wilhire 24 hour race in 1992 and 1993 driving an M3 BMW. He also finished runner up in the 1992 ESSO Group N Saloon Car Championship.
 
He was runner-up in the Euro Car V6 Championship in 1995 before moving up to the mighty V8 Eurocar saloon car series, winning the championship in 1996 and 1997 and finishing runner-up in 1998.

He then moved to the TVR Tuscan Challenge in 1999 and twice finishing runner up in the championship.
 
In 2000 he teamed up with Mark Sumpter to race a Porsche GT3R in the GTO division of the British GT Championship, supporting Mark to the title. Mike then jumped into the top class of the British GT championship to race a thundering Lister Storm with David Warnock. Despite fierce opposition they won the title in 2001 and finished second the following season. Mike also made his FIA GT championship with Lister in 2001, winning outright at Nurburgring when partnering Jamie Campbell-Walter.
 
In 2002 he also competed with Mark in the Daytona 24 Hours, finishing the race at their first attempt. For 2003, Mike once again teamed up with Mark Sumpter to compete in the FIA GT championship alongside team mates Godfrey and David Jones.
 
For 2004 and 2005, he returned to the British GT Championship, winning races in 2004 with Sumpter and leading the chase of the Ferraris in 2005 when partnered by former TVR Tuscan rival Michael Caine.

In 2006 Mike took on one of the toughest seasons of his racing career when he moved into the BTCC. He was immediately on the pace and won a memorable victory at Mondello Park before adding more podium finishes as the season progressed.

For 2007, Mike Jordan is determined to challenge for race wins and podium finishes in the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship.
 
With on-going support from John Guest (now a 12-year partnership), he is continuing with the ex-Matt Neal Honda Integra.
