With MSA Formula going into its final weekend of the year, many drivers wanted to end their season on a high, around the Brands Hatch GP circuit. Singaporean-born James Pull managed another strong weekend, to finish the final race in sixth place, securing tenth place in the championship.
Pull, who has stood on the podium four times this year, was able to finish inside the top ten for the opening two races, mostly thanks to a strong qualifying.
“It was great to finish with a bit of a bang.” he stated. “I wanted to end the season on a high in the same way it began, so it was really pleasing. I came into my rookie season in cars with a plan to learn and develop myself as a driver and I feel what I have learnt – even on this last weekend – goes beyond even my expectations.”
Pull admitted he was yet to decide where to go next go next year, however another season in MSA doesn’t seem too unlikely. The Fortec Motorsports driver still has time in his hands, having only just turned 16.
He added: “I wanted to be more aggressive this weekend and it really made a difference. I felt I got a lot out of it. My race craft has improved significantly and I have to thank the guys at Fortec for all their hard work in this area.”
Reflecting on his exciting season and looking to the future, James added: “I’ve really enjoyed this season, the four podiums at Donington Park and Brands Hatch (Indy) are the highlights. I would like to thank the guys at JTR for that.”
“The season started really well and although mid-season was tough, it has ended positively. I’m really pleased with tenth place overall considering this was my first season in cars. I want to thank my family and teams for all their support over the year. I plan to can keep moving in the right direction next season.”
He had entered the weekend as one of the many drivers fighting for ninth place in the championship, but despite outscoring former ninth place driver, Petru Florescu, he lost out to Rafael Martins who finished his season with a podium.
