British-Malaysian driver, James Pull, confirmed his status as an up and coming star of the future with the recent announcement of his inclusion in the highly coveted Lamborghini Young Driver programme.
The announcement comes after James’ stunning run of results in his fantastic debut races in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo championships.
“I’ve just been announced as part of the Lamborghini Young Driver programme, which is really cool,” he commented. “Lamborghini is such a prestigious name to be connected to and I will be working very hard to repay the compliment they have paid me”.
Starting his year off in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Middle East series, Pull impressed straight off the bat, taking a pole position and four wins out of four in the two rounds he competed in. This remarkable show of raw talent saw him finish the series as vice-champion despite not competing in the first round. The strong results didn’t stop there, as he turned his attention to the European and Asian categories of the series.
Despite only setting foot in a Lamborghini for the first time in March, James has taken an astonishing eight out of a possible ten podiums, with four wins and four second places.
In Sepang for the Asian series, he wasted no time in asserting himself as a serious title contender with a brilliant third and second place in the two races of the weekend respectively.
In the European season opener at Monza, James was agonisingly close to becoming the first Brit to win a Super Trofeo race, running first until a mechanical issue stripped him of the win with less than 0.1 of a second to the finish line. His last outing, at the Buriram circuit in Thailand, was another opportunity to bring home some silverware which he did with ease, adding another second place to his roster.
“I have raced with FFF Racing in Middle East and now in Asia and they are a top team. I have a great team mate in Jack Bartholomew, we have really worked well together”.
With no time to rest, Pull will next venture to Silverstone for his UK debut in GT racing (19-20th May), where he will be racing for the first time as an official member of the Lamborghini Young Driver programme.
Commenting on the upcoming rounds with the Bonaldi Motorsport team James said: “I’m looking forward to it. The guys at Bonaldi and Kelvin Snoeks, my team-mate in Europe, were fantastic at Monza and the car was superb, so I am really looking forward to this weekend. Silverstone being my home track, and also a track I love, means I’m really excited. Let’s see what we can do.”
