Orange Hedgehog Racing and the "Julze Journey"

Please pop over to our new racing web page for regular updates at www.orangehedgehog



After a brilliant first race weekend on the 2nd September 2017, Julze has already started putting together plans for his return in 2018 and 2019. We are looking for sponsors to join the "Julze Journey" to help this dream continue.


The motorsport journey for Julze has begun. Julze is highly recognizable as a chief pit lane marshal in the British GT Championship, as well as undertaking marshal duties in many other championships at circuits throughout Europe. He has a dream to race and experience life on the other side of the pit wall. Working with sponsors and supporters, Julze is turning this dream into a reality.
