James had his first lap in a kart at the age of 8 and took it up competitively when he reached 10 years of age. He competed for a short time at Forest Edge, Clay Pigeon and Camberley the Honda Cadet Championship, where James gained many race wins, fastest laps and podium finishes.
In 2015 he decided to focus on one track location; London Camberley where he finished Championship Runner-Up and in 2016 he won outright the Easter Championship.
In Summer 2016, the difficult decision was made to either progress into a higher karting formula or save finances towards the ultimate in junior car racing - the Ginetta Junior Championship.
James joined the Championship for the last two rounds in September 2017 and in his first race he came 10th overall and in his second at Brands Hatch Grand Prix he finished 6th overall and second in the Rookie class.
