About Julian Godfrey
Not only is Julian one of the country’s top engine builders he also is a highly accomplished Driver. Starting in Motocross it was clear too see that Julian had a natural balance and ability and soon starting his winning ways .After playing with Go Carts as that’s all the time it would allow, Julian finally tried out Rallycross in a hired Peugeot 205 owned by the late Terry Briggs .
In his second season Julian Built his own 205 and was subject to many Fia strip downs of the engine as many thought he was cheating due to his unbelievable pace. Although to win the championship Julian would have to wait until 2006 with a 2nd place in 2007 and winner again in 2008.
Meanwhile the decision had been made to progress to the Super Modified Class with a Ford Fiesta that could also work as a 1600cc for the Div 1a class in Europe. So for the 2009 championship Julian campaigned with the little fiesta against much powerful machinery and this resulted in an overall 2nd place .However in 2010 there was no catching him and 1st in the super Modified class was an overdue conclusion .
At the end of the 2010 Julian was given the opportunity by Pat Doran to use his Ford Fiesta supercar for the upcoming 2011 season. Knowing that Julian had often blamed the drivers for poor performance it was now time to “put your arse in the seat and see what you can do?” By the end of 2011 Pat may have regretted the Fiesta loan, by now the car was faster and more reliable than ever and although we had a shaky start Julian was crowned the 2011 supercar British Champion.
This year 2012 on 27 October having won the last round of the Supercar British Championship and after amassing points during the year’s racing with a further 2 first place wins, 1 second place and 1 third place made Julian Godfrey the British Champion in the Supercar Class for the second time.
The crowning achievement of 2012 was on the following day 28 October Julian Godfrey also won the Rallycross Grand Prix adding his name to the elite list of former Rallycross drivers!
What Julian Godfrey Motorsport says about SPEC R
Julian Godfrey Motorsport uses and recommends
Spec –R intercoolers and Radiators.
We were approached By Pete from Spec-r about trying his range of performance Intercoolers on our Ford Fiesta Rallycross car. Intercoolers on these cars have a huge task as Rallycross is very close all action racing, on multi surfaces. If you are chasing for the lead within seconds your intercooler gets filled in with loose gravel from the leading car and temperatures soar. Your power falls away just when you thought you had enough power to pass them.
So how do Spec-r coolers compare?
We have now used them for two seasons and the results speak for themselves.
