Jann Mardenborough was born on September 9, 1991, in Darlington, County Durham, England.

He is the son of Steve Mardenborough, a former English professional soccer player with more than 300 appearances in the EFL. 

Jann’s obsession with cars and racing grew significantly at a young age.

Eventually, reality hit him in the face once he came of age to understand the costs involved in becoming a professional.

Later on, he took all his obsession with Gran Turismo, a racing game on the PlayStation. Moreover, by the time he was 19, he realized his chances of becoming a professional were starting to fade away.

This was until Nissan’s marketing executive Darren Cox’s GT Academy came along in 2011. 

GT Academy provided a chance for a professional racing contract to the winner of the online competition.

Jann’s diminished hope was finally starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel. He won the tournament, walking past 90,000 entrants. 

Mardenborough had no prior professional experience in motorsport before 2011. He was rewarded with a drive for Nissan at the Dubai 24 Hour race. 

Moreover, he has also competed in the Toyota Racing Series, FIA World Endurance Championship, Formula E, Super Taikyu-ST-X, and many more tracks.

So, it can be assumed that his income revolves around the amount of $200,000 per year.

In addition to this, Jann Mardenborough worked on a film named Gran Turismo. It’s a $200 million feature-length film based on his life. It stars Hollywood’s Orlando Bloom, Stranger Things icon David Harbour and many more.

The movie is based on the cinematic adaptation of the Jann Mardenborough story- the gamer who turned into a racing driver after winning a Gran Turismo contest, his struggles, and his decision to almost quit his dream.

Jann worked as a co-producer, stunt driver, and consultant on the movie. He likely is to receive a lucrative sum from the movie itself, increasing his wealth.

Sony Pictures is all set to release the movie worldwide on August 25.

A Tragic Incident

On March 28, 2015, Jann’s GT3-class Nissan GT-R Nismo caught air at the Flugplatz section of the Nurburgring Nordschleife.

In a flash, the car went past the barrier and into the crowd.

This incident resulted in the death of one spectator and left many injured. Mardenborough, however, wasn’t severely injured.

Moreover, shedding light on this tragic accident and giving tribute to the lost soul, he permitted the moviemakers to include his 2015 horror crash.

He stated,” It would have been a disservice to the audience if it was not included.”
