After spending the past year competing for British team Arden Racing in the GP3 series, 22 year old Falchero makes the move to the U.S. with his eyes fixed on the 2019 Indy Lights Presented by Cooper Tires championship.
“I am really proud to be driving for Belardi Auto Racing, everyone on the team has welcomed me wonderfully and the first day of driving the car was great. I felt really comfortable in the car and I can’t wait to get to round one at St. Pete and to fight for the championship” – Julien Falchero
Falchero recorded nine top 15 finishes in 14 GP3 starts last season, with a best finish of 11th at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

When Belardi Auto Racing team owner Brian Belardi had the opportunity to sign Julien, he jumped on it immediately.
“Julien has been extremely quick in off-season testing. At the Spring training test, he proved this again. It was more about getting acclimated to his engineer and the the team. He will be an immediate contender for the championship and we can’t wait for St. Pete to start the season.”
