The threshold for entry to pro racing is getting higher and higher. And even if you get in, it’s almost impossible to run up front and win unless you have a simply ridiculous budget. Thing is, nobody told Tom O’Gorman that.

O’Gorman was a champion level autocrosser that wanted to get into wheel-to-wheel pro racing. Problem is that he didn’t have the budget to get into Pirelli World Challenge, the series he wanted to run. But that didn’t stop O’Gorman. He turned to the internet, got the funds he needed, and took on major teams on a shoestring budget.


Bark M. has the full story of O’Gorman’s rise to glory over on Road & Track.
