Sam Tordoff is one of the UK's most successful tin-top racing drivers. Since his karting debut at the age of 11, the Leeds-based driver has gone on to set an enviable benchmark across a number of high profile championships such as the Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship, British GT Championship and Porsche Carrera Cup GB.

Sam made his mark on the UK motorsport scene racing in the Renault Clio Cup in 2009, picking up a BRDC rising star along with his first race before making his BTCC debut in 2014. The 28-year-old already has three BTCC titles to his name – clinching the Manufacturers'/ Constructors' Title with MG in 2014 before  securing the Teams' and Manufacturers' Titles with BMW in 2016 - where he also narrowly missed out on the Champions' Crown by just two points.

A switch to the British GT Championship with Barwell Motorsport for the 2017 season was rewarded with yet more silverware, with the Yorkshireman's four podiums playing a fundamental part in helping to secure the Teams' Championship.

2018 makes Tordoff's fifth full season competing in the BTCC, and the six-times race winner joins Team GardX Racing with Motorbase in the new Ford Focus RS as the Championship gets set to celebrate its 60th anniversary year.
