Tom is a Welsh racing driver competing in a number of series and championships across the UK and abroad.
In 2023 Tom will we racing in his third season of the BRSCC Mazda MX-5 SuperCup, aiming to build on improvements made in the first two seasons and continuing to push towards the front of the grid.
Whilst the MX-5 SuperCup championship is the main focus of every season Tom also races in one-off events in other championships such as the BRSCC ClubSport Trophy, as well as things further afield. For example a race in the Spanish GT-CER endurance race finished off the 2021 season, with Tom driving a Clio Cup at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya and getting his first podium finish.
This past weekend we raced at Silverstone GP, competing in both the MX5 SuperCup and the ClubSport Endurance race. It was a challenging weekend with mixed weather, a strong grid of drivers, and a few new faces who have won other championships. We had good pace in testing, but the race weekend presented its own challenges.
As well as the MX-5 SuperCup races, I also competed in an endurance race with the BRSCC ClubSport Trophy over the same weekend. I've done a few of these one-off races this year and it's great fun to mix it up with a really varied grid of other cars, as well as having to factor in a pit stop.
Still in the MX-5, with the same spec used for the MX-5 SuperCup, it's quite a bit slower than many of the front-running cars but the race is split up into performance based classes. The MX-5 ends up in Class D and competes with a number of other MX-5s as well as a few other cars like Toyota MR2s.
For the penultimate round of the 2022 season, we headed to Donington Park for three MX-5 SuperCup races around the GP track- a track that really suits the MX5 and is always good fun to drive. It was another chance to keep the run of solid qualifying performances and race results I've achieved through the season so far.
