Engineer by trade, Julien fell in love with the golden age of racing early on, where the drivers, the mentality of the time and the look of the sixties made for an era we all crave to go back to. A dream that would come true whilst studying in Lyon, Julien came up with the idea of the world’s first historic racing school, allowing drivers to go back in time to the sixties with vintage Formula cars and in one of the world’s most beautiful circuits, the Charade circuit. You’ll find him on all of our driving days, with a smile and happy to speak for hours about vintage racing.
