REMARKABLE DRIVE FROM LAMBORGHINI RACER MIDDLETON SEALS FOURTH OUTRIGHT PODIUM OF AMERICAN SEASON

British Racing Drivers’ Club Rising Star Stuart Middleton produced an outstandingly tenacious performance during the final event of the Lamborghini Super Trofeo North America season at Sebring International Raceway on Friday, 13th November, to secure another overall podium. Visiting the famous Florida track for the first time, the Lamborghini Squadra Corse Young Driver Programme racer – from Ashington in Northumberland – fought tooth and nail with eventual champion Madison Snow during the closing stages of round nine to take a fabulous third place. In round 10 later in the day, Middleton and team-mate Stevan McAleer raced to a top four result and ultimately concluded the championship fourth in the Pro Class standings to bring a pleasing conclusion to the rescheduled 2020 campaign. Across the season, the Prestige Performance with Wayne Taylor Racing pairing achieved six Pro Class podiums and four outright podium results. Marking only his second year In the Lamborghini Super Trofeo car, and first in North America, former British GT4 Champion and GT4 European Series Vice-Champion Middleton has performed very impressively and especially when considering some of the difficulties encountered during the campaign. “We were a bit more on the money this weekend with the car, that’s for sure, and it’s good to end the season on a higher note”, said the talented British racer, “I think, as a driver, I’ve done the most I can all year. In terms of what I’ve had to do in my first season in America, learning all of the tracks from scratch, I think it’s been one of my strongest seasons from that point of view. “I’m happy with the job I’ve done and thankful to the team for the hard work they’ve been putting in behind the scenes. It’s been a frustrating year for us all with some of the issues we’ve been chasing, but this weekend was a good way to end the championship. If we’d had the car more like this from the start of the season, there’s no doubt Stevan [McAleer] and I could have challenged for the title.”
