Although he is only freshly out of school, Isaac already has outstanding driving skills as he is showing in his first year in the ultra competitive Touring Car class.

He is currently ahead in the race for the Tom Walker Memorial Trophy, which is competed for by drivers contesting their first season in the championship, and stands second in the championship itself.

In his Race Car Consultants VW Golf GTi, Isaac was in action this month at Brands Hatch and in round five he surged up from ninth on the grid to third only to be edged out for a podium finish.
