RACED IN: ELMS - LMP2
Tom Gamble is a British BRDC Superstar racing driver who competed in the European Le Mans Series with United Autosports (2020-2022).
Tom made his racing debut in karting, inspired by his older brother. In 2017, he won his first championship, coming away victorious at the Ginetta Juniors with Elite Motorsport, which lead onto a season of single-seater racing in the British F3 championship.
Tom was awarded the McLaren Autosport BRDC Award in 2018, winning the opportunity to drive an F1 car around Silverstone. This was where Zak Brown, co-owner of United Autosports, first became aware of the young Brit.
In 2020, Tom made the move to prototype sportscar racing, signing with United Autosports in their LMP3 #2 Ligier JS P320. The team won three out of the five rounds, finished on the podium four out of five times, and secured an outstanding championship win.
After a successful 2020 European Le Mans Series LMP3 campaign, Tom was promoted to United’s LMP2 #22 Oreca-07 where he came away second in the 2021 championship. The same year, he made his American racing debut, racing in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship at Petit Le Mans alongside United teammates Andy Meyrick and Niklas Kruetten.
In 2022, Tom Gamble contested the European Le Mans Series once again, finishing third in the championship with United Autosports.
He impressed in his prize Formula One test with McLaren and I am sure he will be one to watch.
