UK-based Brazilian Thomas Erdos has an impressive motorsport pedigree. All through his career he has established a reputation as someone who is able to post some of the fastest times around - whatever car he drives.

Erdos came to prominence in 1990 when he won his first major title - the British Formula Renault Championship. It was a comprehensive win, achieved with months to spare, and earned him great praise from none other than Nigel Mansell, who declared Tommy a "champion for the future".

He migrated into GT and sportscar racing in 1995, making his Le Mans debut with Team Marcos. Other career highlights include his Daytona 24 Hours debut in 2002, when he produced the fastest lap in class, and podiums for every race he finished in the British GT Championship of 1999. He went on to take the 2002 BGT title, co-driving a Saleen S7R with Ian McKellar. The pair delivered 8 wins and 3 second places in a twelve-race season. Erdos also secured the Top Gun Trophy, awarded to the most successful individual driver in the championship.

Tommy has vast experience of endurance racing, having competed eight times at Le Mans as well as Daytona, Spa, Bathurst and Sebring. Most recently he has been starring aboard the MG Lola sports prototypes campaigned by RML, taking class pole in the Le Mans 1000k of 2003, and achieving a string of excellent results in the 2004 and 2005 LMES alongside long-term racing partner Mike Newton. In 2006 they took their second consecutive LMP2 class win in the Le Mans 24 Hours, having first won the category in 2005.

In 2005 Tommy and Mike missed the LMES driver's title by a single point. In 2006 they lead the championship again after a remarkable win at Donington Park in late August, but then lost in the final round at Jarama when the engine died on the last lap. Thomas was leading LMP2 at the time. That devastating result cost the duo their title, although Tommy had the satisfaction of knowing that he'd been unbeaten to pole all year. That clean sweep included qualifying for the Le Mans 24 Hours as well as every round of the Le Mans Series.

Tommy and Mike competed in the 2007 Daytona 24 Hours, sharing the Cheever Racing Fabcar Porsche with Eddie Cheever himself. Their Le mans challenge ended in a disappointing retirement, but the Le Mans Series finally provided the title Tommy and Mike had been seeking for for three years. Twice runners-up, they clinched the LMP2 title in 2007.

Tommy is married with two young children and lives in Buckinghamshire.
