Tom Tarlton will compete full-time in the 2023 Skip Barber Formula Race Series season. The 35-year-old Californian is set to make his first pro racing start after completing his 3-Day and 2-Day Skip Barber Advanced Racing Schools at Circuit of the Americas.
Prior to his time at Skip Barber, Tom mostly competed in sim racing with minimal karting experience. He believes that the Skip Barber Formula Race Series is the best place to kickstart his racing journey.
“The Skip Barber Formula Race Series is a good mix of great competition and an optimal learning environment,” Tarlton said. “I also like that all the cars are prepared equally, allowing for a level playing field amongst all the competitors.”
Tarlton will compete in the Masters class and go head-to-head against his twin brother, Rob. Tom’s goals for the season are to become a competitive racer and contend for the Masters class championship with hopes to eventually compete in IMSA as a gentlemen driver.
