James first got behind the wheel at just eight-years-old, and subsequently progressed through the karting ranks. In 2017 he finished the motorsport season as vice-champion of BRDC British F3, claiming the rookie championship title in impressive fashion too.
In 2018 James’ attention switched to GT racing, where he made his debut in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo series. Having never tested the car, James exceeded all expectations in his first race outing by winning the round.
In 2019 he furthered his exciting career by competing in the Blancpain GT GT3 Endurance Cup with Barwell Motorsport. He finished an impressive fourth in his championship class and took a spectacular win at the 24 Hours of Spa which was in fact his debut 24-hour race.
This year, James will be a GT3 driver with Aston Martin R-Motorsport in the GT World Challenge Europe.
