“My name is Tom Cossar, I am a 24 year old drainage engineer from Rugby. I started racing sidecars on Grasstrack on my 16th birthday with my brother Mark, when in our 2nd race of the day the grab rail snapped and flung me off the back which resulted in me breaking my wrist and thumb but that didn’t put me off.
