Tom Ferrier is a British racing driver, born 14 November 1981. The highlight of his long karting career was winning the 1998 British Championship. He won the Star Cup of the Formula Renault championship a year later, before switching to saloon cars.
After 2 wins in the Renault Clio Winter series, in 2000 he raced in the national Saloon Championship http://archive.lancashireeveningtelegraph.co.uk/2000/7/7/723700.htmlas well as some Class B BTCC races (the two series used virtually identical cars) in an Alfa Romeo 156 prepared by Gary Ayles' team. For 2001 he was linked to Vauxhall for the main class, but instead raced in both the European Super Production Championship and the BTCC. In Europe he was 12th overall and second in the Under 25 Cup, in an Edenbridge Racing BMW. In Britain he was 10th overall in a JSM Alfa Romeo 147, leading at Donington but suffering an engine failure while running second http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/motorsport/1559747.stm.
For 2002 he concentrated on the European Touring Car Championship (ETCC) in a DART Racing Alfa Romeo 156 with support from Alfa Romeo UK http://www.italiaspeed.com/news_sport_touringcars_2002_1_index.html. In 2005 he was a frontrunner in the SEAT Cupra Championship http://www.seatsportuk.co.uk/sccNet/?Page=Reports&Year=2005. He was entered for the 2004 BTCC by Carly alongside countryman James Hanson, but this did not happen. He did some Caterham racing in 2004 http://www.caterhamracing.com/news/content.php?id=177. Ferrier ultimately returned to the BTCC for the final round of 2006, in a SEAT Toledo bought by Motorbase Performance just 2 weeks before http://www.touringcartimes.com/news.php?id=702. With virtually no time in the car before the weekend, he took two points finishes http://www.crash.net/news_view.asp?cid=10&id=151026. He also did some British GT Championship races in 2006 http://www.bbc.co.uk/lincolnshire/content/articles/2006/08/30/glew_brands_hatch_300806_feature.shtml.
He started 2007 in the British GT Championship, for Tech 9 sharing with Phil Quaife http://www.dailysportscar.com/viewArticle.cfm?articleUID=899E1EE7-1143-FDC9-352A054993223F5F. He rejoined Motorbase for the BTCC mid-season http://www.btcc.net/html/generalnews_detail.php?id=622&PHPSESSID=81c3460e8c2f375e71c965aa62b5bdac. Rain in his first meeting counted against him http://www.motorbaseperformance.co.uk/british-touring-car-championship.html but he scored points at Snetterton. Involvement in the huge pile-up in race 1 at Brands Hatch eliminated him from the rest of that meeting, and the team opted to skip the next meeting at Knockhill to concentrate on the season finale at Thruxton. It was ultimately Paul O'Neill who raced the car however.
