James has been lucky enough to have the opportunity to race from a young age and hopes that he can gain support to progress further in cars. His recent break from national kart racing has spurred him on to pursue racing cars and make the most of the opportunities that he has received in the last two years.

In 2015, James makes up to the highliy competivie Ginetta GT5 Challenge which supports the biggest GT championship in the UK; the Biritsh GT.
