Jamie Tonks may not be a huge name in the world of motorsport, but as a relative latecomer to the sport, he’s certainly turned more than a few heads in the short time he’s been racing.
Choosing the notoriously fraught Civic Cup for your inaugural championship was a brave choice, but it paid off for the Tesco Area Manager, when in 2020, after competing in just 8 races, he finished 5th overall.
2021 saw him tackle the championship again, with a race win and no less than 9 podiums to his name, meaning he would finish the championship P3. In 2022 he took on the fearsome grid of TCR-UK and has seriously impressed so far, thanks to a number of Top-5 finishes.
