O’Sullivan continues to climb through the ranks in motorsport after it was announced that he will race for ART Grand Prix team in 2024.

The 18-year-old would feature in the Ginetta Junior Championship in 2019, where he would finish runner up. He then made the move to British F4 a year later in 2020, achieving second place once again.

O’Sullivan would go on to win the GB3 Championship in 2021 after winning a total of 7 races and picking up 14 podiums along the way.

In 2022, he was promoted to F3 with Rodin Carlin. Despite finishing his rookie season in 11th place, O’Sullivan made the switch to PREMA Racing in 2023 and would go on to finish second in the championship after taking home four victories.
