Racing career

Byford began racing in single seaters, mainly in Formula Ford and Formula 3 cars. He later moved onto tin tops, racing in several club series.

He moved into the British GT Championship in 2000, where he achieved a few podium finishes. For 2001 he raced in the Renault Clio Cup UK, finishing 3rd in the championship after a successful debut season. Byford remained in the championship for 2002, however he only managed 4th position in the championship.

Byford's next championship titles were the 2003 Super Coupe Cup and 2005 Mazda MX5 Championship. In 2006 he returned to the Clio Cup and finished 5th in the championship, in 2007 he won the championship despite not winning a race.

2008 saw Byford move into the Seat Cupra Cup, where he finished 3rd in the championship after achieving three wins.

Budget issues prevented Byford from racing full-time for the next few seasons, until he was given the chance to race for AmD Milltek in the BTCC after their previous driver Tom Onslow-Cole left the team.

Byford signed with Team Bullrun in the Britcar British Endurance Championship after he was unable to raise the necessary funds to continue racing in the BTCC.
