Karting

Christodoulou began his racing career in karting in Britain. Adam had his Karting licence suspended after he was found to have benefitted from a "very deliberate, very sophisticated and very expensive" illegal engine modification conducted by his father that also affected three other drivers unknowingly. It was found in the MSA court that Adam must have been aware of the modifications, and he was initially banned from karting for 9 months, reduced after his family paid a substantial fine to the MSA.

On returning to karting, Adam found himself subject to a "kangaroo court" at the hands of his competitors, often finding himself pushed off the track, and very quickly left karting entirely at the end of 2006.
