Tom was born and raised in the UK before moving to New Zealand at the age of six. His love of motorsports started at the age of three when his father Stig brought home a mini-quad bike for Tom. After the family had moved to New Zealand, Tom's mother Kim encouraged and supported him and his brother Paul in karting and this ignited Tom's motorsport career. He competed in karting from the age of eight and won numerous titles throughout New Zealand up until the end of 2008. In 2009 Tom's father suggested he move to Sweden to take the next step in his career, and where he competed in the Swedish Formula Renault Championship. Tom moved back to the UK early 2010 to compete in the Formula Renault UK Series. In his first season, aged just 16 years old, Tom won the championship - eclipsing Lewis Hamilton's record as the youngest winner of the series. After winning the championship, Tom made the switch to German F3 where he finished his rookie year in 6th place with one win, two poles and four podium finishes. Tom continued to be successful in German F3 before he switched to FIA European F3 for the 2013 campaign. Running with a one-car team, Tom exceeded expectations to finish the year in 7th place and earning himself a drive with Jagonya-Ayam with Carlin for 2014. Now in machinery that was capable of winning races, Tom took six wins, six poles and fifteen podiums to seal 2nd in the championship - finishing runner-up to Esteban Ocon and beating Red Bull protege Max Verstappen. 

This success led Tom to be offered a full-time factory drive with BMW Motorsport in the DTM for the 2015 season. For the first time in his career, Tom was racing in a closed cockpit but the new car and team did not startle him. In his rookie season, Tom finished the championship in a highly respectable 14th place and took his maiden victory at Oschersleben to become the youngest ever BMW race winner and the second-youngest ever winner in the DTM. Following up on his 2015, Tom then finished his sophomore season in 6th place as the second-highest  BMW driver! Unfortunately, a tough 2017 campaign saw Tom struggle to reach his previous heights in the DTM and a change of scenery saw Tom be announced as BMW's second driver for the 2017/18 Formula E Championship.
