Since first turning the wheel aged eight, 20-year-old Lamborghini Young Driver James Pull has been proving himself as one-to-watch for the future.
After taking the karting world by storm in Asia, James moved up to compete at the highest levels of karting across Europe.
In 2015 James hit the ground running during his debut single-seater season, competing in the ultra-competitive MSA Formula Championship, and in 2016 James finished fourth in the British Formula 4 Championship with Carlin Motorsport.
After an exceptional showing of talent and pace, James ended the 2017 season as both BRDC British F3 Vice-Champion and Rookie-Champion. He was also one of only two drivers to visit the podium at least once at every round contested.
In 2018 James moved into GT car racing in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Championship. With five wins and 17 podiums in total, James became the vice-champion in both Asia and the Middle East and created history by becoming the first-ever British Super Trofeo European race winner.
2019 was yet another successful year for James, where his highlight was claiming victory at the formidable 24 Hours of Spa in what was his debut 24-hour race. He finished his season fourth in class in the 2019 Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup, where he consistently demonstrated strong and confident drives.
2020 sees James competing in the GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup with R-Motorsport, where he will contest in the silver category.
James Pull’s chances of a season finale victory in the 2019 Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup were thwarted with an unfortunate last-minute drive-through penalty as the #78 car went from leading the silver class and sixth overall, to finishing eighth in class.
This weekend saw one of the most famed 24 hour races on the motorsport calendar, when the world’s best GT drivers take to the track at Spa-Francorchamps to contest the Total 24 Hours of Spa. Teaming up with Barwell Motorsports once again, alongside his teammates Sandy Mitchell and Jordan Witt, James Pull engaged in a fearsome battle against the elements and a 73 car field, to claim his greatest career victory to date, winning the Silver Cup at this year’s prestigious race.
James Pull showed his ability while battling at the front of the pack during the second round of the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup at his home track, Silverstone Circuit, but left with a feeling of what could have been given his performance over the weekend.
After making an impressive debut in GT racing last year, James Pull is set to continue his strong form as he joins Barwell Motorsport for 2019, contesting the Silver Cup class of the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup.
