“What a way to end the season,” Julian beamed. “It all came together in the end!” The first race was good, but it could have been better — it was really wild out there and one of the guys bumped me from behind, so there was a bit of damage and the engine was cutting intermittently from there. “I did what I could — a pity because we were running the same pace as the leaders and the car was really good so we could have had a better result.
“The second race was brilliant and it was absolutely amazing to finish the season on the podium with the second fastest lap in the race. “We had a huge gap to close to third but we did it, so it’s a huge thank you to the team — the car was amazing to drive. “It’s been a year I will never forget — thank you, thank you, thank you to my incredible Team Pelfrey!”
Julian now looks forward to the Walter Hayes Formula Ford festival before taking a well earned break following a fraught first season of international racing on the USF2000 Road to Indy.
