As many of you may know, Simon has a love for cars, old, new and normally fast.  He loves nothing more than a day at the track and when he came across young raw talent in the form of Tommy Foster, a local lad from Newquay, he couldn't resist being part of the action.  Kernow Fires sponsorship of Tommy will help him reach his racing goals and we will have the excitment of keeping up with his success and even being able to watch him on the ITV Hub, if not occassionally in person if I know Simon!

Here's a bit more from Tommy's bio.  You can find out more about him and upcoming events on his website

Tommy Foster is a 17 year old British Racing Driver, born and raised in Newquay, Cornwall. Competing in the 2019 F4 Season with Arden Motorsport.

Tommy first found a love for speed whilst on holiday, watching racing on the streets of Monaco. On his return to Cornwall, his mother and father, Jane & Robin, let Tommy loose at St Eval Kart Circuit and the passion for motorsport started there.

From the age of 8 until 16, Tommy had a very successful karting career winning multiple English and British Championships, also putting it on Pole for the World Finals in Portugal in 2017.

As part of his YRDA preparations, Tommy has already undertaken extensive single-seater testing, simulator and human performance training programmes, all of which contributed to securing a seat with the defending British F4 Teams’ Champions.

You can watch the racing, live as part of the ITV Touring Car coverage and on the ITV Hub, online.
