TOM'S RACE REVIEW

“What a season it’s been. We gave it our absolute all out there to get the title but we were just short. However, I’m so proud of the team for their hard work all season long - it’s been a privilege to share all of our success with them. From standing on the podium at Le Mans to taking pole position in Bahrain, there are so many highlights to look back on. I'd like to say a huge thanks to everyone at JOTA and all of the sponsors. Thanks too to Sean and Stoffel, it’s been a great ride with them this year. Congratulations to WRT on the title, the battle was intense!”
