Season ends in style with two terrific races
Twelve months ago Stuart Middleton was at the centre of Ginetta Junior controversy as it was his jumped start that gave Jamie Caroline the title. A year on and he was in the headlines for entirely different reasons after starring in two cracking contests.
Despite missing out on the championship to William Tregurtha, Middleton ended his season in style with a dramatic victory in the opener – which was postponed to Sunday after a nasty shunt for Dave Wooder, Charlie Digby and Jenson Dineen exiting Paddock Hill Bend.
Lewis Brown led much of the race but Middleton was on a mission and drew alongside exiting Clark Curve for the final time and powered ahead to beat the HHC driver by just 0.062s across the line.
Race two was another thriller with Brown and Middleton at the centre of the action. They were involved in a brilliant four-way tussle for the lead with Harry King and Charlie Fagg. In the end it was Brown who eventually prevailed from King and Middleton, thus sealing third in the standings.
