FIRST PODIUMS OF NORTH AMERICAN SEASON FOR MIDDLETON WITH PAIR OF RUNNER-UP SPOTS AT VIRGINIA RACEWA
Prestige Performance with Wayne Taylor Racing driver Stuart Middleton celebrated his first podium results of the 2020 Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America season over the weekend, 22nd/23rd August, with a pair of richly deserved second places at Virginia International Raceway. Teaming with Stevan McAleer in the No.1 Lamborghini Huracan, Ashington-based Middleton was able to showcase strong progress from the opening event of the campaign a couple of weeks ago to deliver two very impressive race performances. Finishing runner-up in round three on Saturday, having started fourth on the grid, in round four on Sunday the team-mates were second again after qualifying fifth fastest. In terms of the championship standings, Middleton and McAleer are fourth and just 13 points shy of the lead. “Overall it’s been a really strong weekend with two P2 finishes”, commented Middleton, “We gained a good chunk of points that we needed on the board. I think the team’s made great steps forward to getting us closer to the pace we need to be, coming into the next one we’ll make even more steps forward. I’m really happy for the guys because they worked so hard.”
There is only a fortnight for Middleton to wait before the next instalment of Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America action, with rounds five and six of the season taking place at Road Atlanta on 5th/6th September.
