“What a weekend!” a delighted Julian beamed. “I struggled in qualifying as most teams used an extra set of tyres, which we saved for the race, but I had two great races to come home with a seventh and eighth in two very eventful races — I made up loads of positions in both races and really enjoyed a positive weekend at a truly great racetrack. “That brings us up to sixth in the championship, so let’s keep pushing to the next round.
“Special thanks to my Team Pelfrey and my sponsors Race Driver South Africa, Crossley & Webb, OMP, Arai, MRT, and Cooper Tires.” South African Formula 1600 champion Julian stays in Indianapolis for the third round of the championship on the short kilometre long Lucas Oval adjacent to the Speedway over the 500 weekend of 25 May.
