Flick Haigh, Tom Gamble team up with TF Sport for Road to Le Mans
While TF Sport will be going for championship honours in the 24 Hours of Le Mans next month, the British-based team will also compete in the Road to Le Mans races at Circuit de la Sarthe. Flick Haigh, the reigning British GT Champion, is joined for the double-header by rising star Tom Gamble in the #97 Aston Martin Vantage GT3.
With a background in Caterham racing and then the Michelin Le Mans Cup – including Road to Le Mans in 2017 - Flick raced alongside Jonny Adam in British GT last year, making a dream start to the campaign with pole position and the victory at Oulton Park. With momentum on her side, she secured further podiums and wins on the way to claiming the title at the Donington finale.
Tom is just 17 years of age and has already tasted success. With a background in karting, where he claimed two titles, he clinched the Ginetta Junior championship in 2017 off the back of an impressive eight wins. He moved on to British F3 last year, claiming two victories as well as the prestigious McLaren Autosport BRDC young driver of the year award. More recently he has competed in the Blancpain GT Series as well as an outing last weekend in the British GT Championship where he claimed a sensational pole position on his debut.
TF Sport competed in the Road to Le Mans in 2017 with current Blancpain GT racer Ahmad Al Harthy and Tom Jackson. It was a spectacular two events for the pairing with victory by 30-seconds in the first race, followed up by another win in the second.
