Sam Callahan

My name’s Sam Callahan & I’m a 27 yo Ginetta GT4 racing driver best previously known for my career in music and my time on the 10th series of The X Factor. I began racing in 2019 with my Dad Mark who’s raced since well before I was born and has taught me everything I know. I love the sport and have well & truly thrown myself at it!

I don’t do many things as hobbies, but I’m a singer/songwriter and musician. I was on X Factor in 2013 and have sustained a career in performing ever since. I’m also a keen fitness fanatic and a personal trainer, but I figure if you love doing something, why not do it properly and try and turn it into your job, right?!
