Following in the wheel tracks of his father Mark, James started his journey in karting at a young age and proceeded to go on and enjoy unprecedented success.
The then 14-year-old went on to make his car-racing debut in the ultra-competitive Ginetta Junior Championship at the end of the 2020 campaign.
That would be where he would remain for the full season in 2021 as he established himself on the TOCA support package.
An exciting transition to single-seater motorsport followed towards the latter stages of 2022 as he partnered with Fortec Motorsport for the final two rounds of British F4.
Competing against some of the brightest talents, he made his mark as one to watch at Silverstone and Brands Hatch before confirming his return to the category for 2023, where he has since established him as a consistent front runner and multiple race winner.
