TOM LONG - Driving Coach for Mazda Miata and F4 Cars

Tom got his start in Showroom Stock and Spec Miata racing, and in 2005 he won the Mazda MX-5 Cup National Championship at the SCCA Runoffs. Tom moved up to the IMSA Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge Series in 2006, and just a year later he was already a podium finisher. In 2009, as a driver and team manager for Freedom Autosport, Tom took his first win in the ST class of the series: an especially memorable victory at his home track of Virginia International Raceway.

The success with Freedom continued. In 2010, Tom earned two wins and a top-five spot in the ST championship. The following year, Tom stood on all three steps of the podium during the season. The 2012 season was another triumph, as Tom and co-driver Derek Whitis finished second in the ST driver championship after taking a win and seven top-ten finishes.

Tom added an ST win in both 2013 and 2014, despite making limited appearances throughout the season as he shifted his focus to the IMSA WeatherTech Series. In 2015, Long made another appearance with Freedom at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, finishing second behind his teammates. In just three races with Freedom in 2017, Tom and co-driver Britt Casey, Jr. had a best finish of second at Road America.

In addition to racing, Tom works as a professional driving coach and instructor. He is also a house coach for the VIR Drivers Club. Tom graduated from the University of North Carolina-Charlotte in 2004 with a degree in business marketing.
