Dominic also contested a one off race in 2007 with Kimi Raikkonen's team at Oulton Park, placing an impressive 5th.

Toyota Racing Series - a rookie at 17 years of age, up against more experienced rivals Dominic scored a well recognized 4th on debut at the New Zealand Grand Prix, following up with podiums and a fantastic pole position and lap record at the Taupo A1GP event in 2008.  

Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup - in 2008 Dominic completed a full winter testing program with championship winning French team SG Formula. Topping the times on many circuits including breaking a lap record at Magny Cours F1 Circuit Dominic proved he had the outright speed to go all the way, often faster than Formula 1 driver Jean Eric Vergne in the same team. 

Competing in 2 rounds of the 2009 Championship, Dominic scored two top ten places in the 40+ car field. Lack of Budget cut the campaign short.

Formula Renault 3.5 - after a successful test at the end of 2010, where on his fourth day of testing in the car Dominic set the time at the Motorland Aragon test with the Lotus F1 Junior Team. In the hope of competing a full championship in 2011, Dominic began pre season testing at Paul Ricard where he managed the 13th fastest time. Unfortunately a deal could not be put together with the Lotus Junior Team and a last minute call up before the first round saw Dominic compete with Pons Racing. Dominic finished both races inside the top 15.

GP3 - after the single race in Formula Renault 3.5 at the beginning of 2011, top GP3 team Addax gave Dominic the opportunity to compete in the first two rounds of the championship at Turkey and Barcelona. 

Showing Dominic's ability to adapt to different cars quickly from the first time in the car at Istanbul during the weekends first practice session where he managed to finish up 12th out of the 30 car field even though he was the only driver in the field not to ever drive the GP3 car before. 

AUSTRALIAN GT - in 2016 Dominic switched to Australian GT onboard the brand new AMG GT3, success came straight away in arguably the worlds leading racing category with a podium at round 1 and two laps records on the way to 2nd place in the Championship. 2017 will be about going one better and Dominic will surely be a title favourite.
