In 2012, whilst studying for a degree in International Financial Management, Leonard started his motorsport career in the Caterham Tracksport category. Due to his university commitments, he was only able to compete in some of the scheduled races. In Leonard's first year he took home two podiums, consisting of a win, and third place position, both at the Nürburgring GP circuit in Germany.
In 2013 Leonard moved up to the top of the Caterham ladder (R300 Superlight Championship), whilst being coached by the 2012 R300 Champion, Paul Wilson. That year, Leonard entered the second to last round leading the championship, however due to mechanical difficulties finished the championship second on points.

In 2016 Leonard entered the Dubai 24 Hour, alongside his teammates Laurens Vanthoor, Michael Meadows and Alain Ferté. The team won the race, making it Audi’s first win in the Dubai 24 Hour. Later that year Leonard competed with Michael Meadows in the Blancpain GT Sprint Cup for the Silver Cup Championship, and the Blancpain Endurance Cup, adding Robin Frijns to the team line-up in the Pro Cup.
Leonard also competed in the 24 Hours Nürburgring, with teammates Robin Frijns, Frederic Vervische and Edward Sandstrome, finishing eighth overall.
