Tregurtha extends lead with another win
HHC’S Will Tregurtha extended his Ginetta Junior Championship lead to 55 points over title rival Stuart Middleton, as Middleton’s opening win was followed by a series of misfortunes.
Middleton took first blood after a stunning move at Deene in the opener had him surge from fourth place to the lead ahead of poleman Tregurtha.
From there, Middleton’s weekend went downhill. He was penalised for passing Brown off the track meaning he scored the same points as second-placed Tregurtha.
His luck worsened in the following race as contact with Brown at Deene had him fall from pole meaning he was second ahead of Seb Perez as Tregurtha took a dominant win.
The reverse-grid finale had Harry King take his second win of the year after jumping Elite Motorsport team-mate Tom Wood at the start.
Wood finished second ahead of Perez, with Tregurtha’s fifth punishing Middleton’s error at Deene that had pushed him down the order.
Middleton made a stunning move at Tarzan to pass five drivers for 10th on the last lap, but the damage was done. “It seems I’ve not had the rub of the green recently,” he said. “We need to bounce back.”
