Middleton ends race season on a high
Highly rated north east racing driver Stuart Middleton enjoyed a successful conclusion to his maiden season of GT3 action in the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe.
At Jerez in Spain last weekend he achieved a double podium and victory in the final race of the 2019 campaign.
Ending his debut season third in the championship, just 14 points shy of the title, Ashington-based Middleton and compatriot Jack Bartholomew started the Jerez event with third place in round 11, before storming to their third win of the year in round 12.
In total, the team-mates raced to eight podium results during the course of the year.
“It’s a fantastic way to end the championship with another win,” said Middleton.
