Tom is currently racing in the senior Rotax Kart series at Rye House. He has tested for FPA and also went to Valencia to complete his ARDS race licence and to test Formula BMW. He won his first novice race at the PF international kart circuit in February 2007 and was the novice winter champion at Buckmore Park later that year.
In 2008, Tom was on course to pick up a 4th place in the Summer Championship at Rye House but was struck down with an illness which meant due to the double points system at the final round he was dropped to a disappointing 11th but did receive the most improved driver of the year for the 2008 season.
He finished 8th in the championship at Buckmore Park out of approximately 90 drivers therefore collecting a trophy at the awards evening that took place in February 2009. The 2009 season is his most successful to date. Tom finished 2nd in the Rye House summer championship by one point in the final round having started the day 5th, results just seemed to go his way and by the end of the final he had managed to finish a point ahead in 2nd. 2010 proved to be a difficult year for Tom. He started the year brightly but financially he could only race once a month thus sacrificing the Buckmore Park championship. Tom's best race to date came in the club meeting held at Rye House on the first weekend of September where he started the final from 12th on the grid and came through to finish an excellent 2nd and receive several different people's praise. Tom, however, stopped racing after the London cup at Rye House in September due mainly to a lack of funds. As of April 2011, Tom has been in talks about making a return which we will inform you of as soon as an announcement is made.
