In his debut year of car racing, James has been able to enjoy much success. He has achieved 4 race wins at three different circuits and showed his pure pace with lap records at Brands Hatch, Silverstone and Zolder. James finished the season as Vice Champion, of 44 entries, narrowly missing out on the top spot by just 2 points.
Reflecting on the championship; had I had the opportunity for more pre-season testing I may have had stronger results at the opening rounds at Snetterton. Budget meant I could not do any more testing than the championship scheduled. However, going from just inside the top 10 to winning round 3 at Donington is brilliant. It demonstrates just how quickly I was able to learn and adapt to the car, something I hope to be able to do in other series.
