On today’s episode we’ve got Porsche driver Tom Sargent. We were fortunate to interview Tom before he set off for the US to drive for McElrea Racing in the Porsche Carrera Cup North America Series in 2023.

  • Family life and growing up in Young, NSW
  • Go-kart career including the UK trip to the world’s most expensive daycare 
  • CHE Racing official ‘Truck Driver’
  • Formula Ford days & pressure to win a championship
  • Living the bachelor life 
  • Few Blokes Inc…Tommy reveals all
  • The infamous Gold Coast road trip story revealed
  • What’s a Porsche like to drive?
  • Trans AM. Yay or Nay?
  • USA…here Tommy comes!
  • The 6hr backstory with Cam Hill
  • What’s in the future? Le Mans? …
  • And The FAST FIVE!
