I am hoping with my perseverance, steely determination and go get attitude I have the ability to succeed. I really enjoy my racing, I love the adrenaline rush of getting in a racing kart or car, the speed and excitement of pushing myself and my ability to the limits. I have a willingness to listen and learn from my peers and I always try and give good feedback to my mechanics on what the car is doing so we can then make the fine tuning that is needed to be a front runner.

Outside of motor racing my other hobbies are playing golf, listening to music, riding my motocross bike around the fields at home which is great for my fitness and playing badminton, but my true passion and what I would like to have a career in is motorsport.

After a karting career which saw him achieve the titles of Welsh Champion, Celtic Champion, Southern NKRA Champion and U.K National NKRA Champion, Tom took his circuit race licence in 2018 and made his single seater debut with the Monoposto Racing Club. In an impressive debut season, Tom showed his raw speed by achieving pole position at every race, two fastest laps, 'Rookie of the year' award, and finished third overall in the Mono 1000 (Moto engine) class championship.

  

In 2019 Tom entered the MINI Challenge JCW series with JamSport Racing, and again showed he was quick to translate his pace to a new series, finishing in the top ten in every race finished, and placing ninth overall in his debut season. Tom continued in MINI Challenge in 2020 as it switched to the TOCA support package, and despite the challenge of a pandemic-disrupted season improved by taking multiple podiums, his debut win, and three class wins in the Graduate Cup for second year drivers.
