Chris was a relative late starter to karting, starting in 2003 at the age of 9 in Formula adets where he did his novice plates. He quickly progressed and by the end of the next year won the Comer cadets, North Regional Final.

Not being happy to stay in cadets for another year, Chris decided to move up to Mini Max for the 2005 season, and by the end of the year was a regular on the podium at Wombwell. He could have stopped in mini Max for another couple of years, but having the need for speed, Chris decided he wanted to drive JICAs. In the middle of 2006, Chris had a time at Strawberry Racing, but damaged his rib badly and did not race again until the second half of the year.
