“Ever since I was born I have been around motorsport with my Fathers high level involvement as a driver. Some say it’s in our blood and I know for sure I would trade nothing in the world to change that.

Reflecting on what I’ve learnt and completed so far through my life I can smile and say I haven’t been another one of the crowd who go along with the stereotypical ways of growing up.

I live to race and I race to win, I hope you can spend some time on my site and keep up with all my latest news as I promise to not disappoint. Perhaps I might see you at the track or out and about one day and if so come and say G’Day!”



Tom began his motorsport career after the decision to move from Motocross and follow his fathers’ footsteps to four wheels completing all requirements for his CAMS National racing license at age 14 years and 9 months. Due to CAMS age restrictions requiring all drivers to be a minimum of 16 years of age to participate in all circuit racing events meant Tom was limited to hill climbs and lap dashes.


(Aged 16) he competed in his first race in Historic Formula Ford with promising results. His progress continued rapidly in 2006 being his second year and he won the New South Wales HSRCA Historic Formula Ford Championship  after numerous 1st places.


Tom progressed to the NSW Formula Ford State Championship in as part of the “Junior Development Program” run by Anglo Australian Motorsport where he came 4th outright (2nd rookie) in the championship driving an older Van Dieman Stealth.


The young 19 year old  returned to the NSW Formula Ford State Championship still part of the “Junior Development Program” but in the latest Comtec Spirit WL07. After a hard fought year with his team mate Tom took 2nd OUTRIGHT  (runners up honours) in the Championship, a number of race wins and 13 podiums from 18 races with 6 fastest laps.

In conjunction with his efforts in NSW Tweedie competed in the final two Victorian State Formula Ford rounds where he achieved excellent results including 3 podiums from 6 races on unfamiliar circuits.  Whilst competing at State level Tom was virtually unbeaten in all races in Historic Formula Ford he participated in including winning the prestigious 2008 John Leffler Memorial Trophy  in convincing fashion.

In the latter parts of 2008 a number of exciting opportunities arose as he was selected as one of the final THREE drivers for the elite CAMS RISING STAR 2009 scholarship we were subjected to vigorous testing at the Australian Institute of Sport and Winton race track to compete in National Formula Ford in 2009. However when the opportunity to be a part of Graham Watson’s Ralt Australia Formula 3 Team was offered Tom chose this first as it would improve his experience even more and provide chances overseas if successful as the “highest open wheel” racing category in Australia.


2009 saw a new challenge for the Tom. Seen as Australian highest level of open wheel racing and internationally a key feeder category to Formula 1, Tom moved into the highly credited Australian Formula 3 Championship. The team suffered a set back very early when team manager Graham Watson passed away unexpectedly days after the first round at Clipsal 500. With the strong support of Family and the remaining team members, team tom was formed. Tom went on to win both the National Class Championship and Graham Watson rookie of the year award in convincing fashion with 12 class wins and 3 outright podiums from 16 races.

Racing an older F304 Dallara (National Class) car and consistently beating the new F307 Dallara (Outright Gold Star Championship) was noticed by a number of teams internationally. In October the 20 year old had a dream come true and traveled to the UK to test British Formula 3 with Team-West-tec which was a great success and saw him racing for the team in the European F3 Championship the following weekend at Jerez (Spain). Solid results on a unfamiliar track and car meant Team West-Tec offered him to drive for them in 2010.

In addition to his Formula 3 Campaign Tom completed some NSW State Formula Ford rounds for extra seat time. He was able to score some podium results with a 20 year old car against the latest specification Formula Fords.


WINNER (2nd year in a row) of the 2010 National Formula 3 Championship by a "country mile" and 3rd OUTRIGHT in Australian Gold Star Championship (almost won) with multiple wins and 17 podiums out of 19 races. Tom led the Gold Star Championship up to round 5 in his "older model" Dallara F304 against BRM"s c'ship winning F307 Dallara's driven by Ben Barker (UK) and Mitch Evans (NZ) and this provided a very close battle right up to the last race at Sandown Park in November where he just missed out not helped by a cancelled race.

WINNER NSW Formula Ford "Petite Series" Championship in a 1986 Van Diemen RF86 against the latest model 2010 "Kent engined" Formula Ford's.

WINNER 4 x races at Eastern Creek's famous Tasman Revival meeting in his families Lola T60 F2 Nov 2010 ... see gallery page this site and and (Lola)


Tom plans to return to the UK and race F3 with Team West-Tec in 2011 have been shelved at the last minute in favour of a late offer from MWMotorsport (Melbourne) who run three BF V8 Supercar Ford Falcon's in the Fujitsu V8 Supercar Series which is the "feeder class" to the V8 "main game". Tom tested very briefly with another V8 Holden team at Wakefield Park early Nov 2010 and the next day was offered the opportunity to race at Sydney's most difficult street circuit at Homebush Bay (Telstra 500 V8 meeting) Dec 3-5th in a BF Falcon by MWMotorsport. This was being treated as an introduction or evaluation weekend (3 x day test program) to prepare him for the full 2011 Fujitsu series and give him more V8 seat time.

2011 continued ... ran a high as 10th outright in Fujutsu V8 Supercar Championship with MW Motorsport  until last round at Homebush where car was damaged too badly in a qualifying accident to compete further in the weekend ... ended 15th outright out of 32 drivers.

Also multiple winner again  in his "family owned" Lola T60 F2 (historic racing) and 3rd outright Bathurst 2011 and 2012  Formula Ford in historic Van Diemen RF86 against latest spec "modern"  Kent engined Formula Fords.


Invited by Team BRM (based in Adelaide) to drive their ELF Oils sponsored Porsche Carrera Cup for the season as part of a two car team.
