James is the 2014 Caterham Supersport Vice Champion!

Saturday 1st November 2014

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.

I had a fantastic season with DPR Motorsport. We were so close to winning the championship. I had some great battles throughout with [the eventual champion] Mike Hart. Considering it has taken him five years to win a championship, I have done exceedingly well to come so close in my first year!

I’ve taken 4 wins and 3 lap records this season. Having only driven at two of the 7 tracks on the calendar before each round, I am very proud of what I have achieved this year.

James’ future in cars is not yet decided, but initial plans sway towards a second season in the Caterham Supersport Championship and competing in other cars to gain experience. “I look forward to what the future has and the opportunities out there. I’m confident I can develop my skills and transfer them across to other cars.”
