Tom Wood – Walero Ambassador
“For me, being comfortable is everything when racing. The Walero base-layers are super comfortable and help regulating my body temperature. They allow me to have full concentration on my driver, eliminating factors such as fatigue.”
Tom started out in karting when he was just 6 years old.
He won 12 out of the 18 races he competed in in the bambino class.
He moved into bigger karts and in the cadet class from the age of 8 until the age of 13.
