Having dominated the KICK Start Energy Drink Ginetta Junior Winter Series at Snetterton last weekend, Stuart Middleton has re-signed with Douglas Motorsport for an assault on the 2016 title.
Middleton was the recipient of the Ginetta Junior Scholarship last year, receiving a fully funded drive in the KICK Start Energy Ginetta Junior Championship. Teaming up with Douglas Motorsport, he was on the pace almost immediately and belied his lack of experience by running at the front for most of the season. At the Ginetta Junior Winter Series last weekend, Middleton was dominant, winning three races and subsequently being described in the press as being “head and shoulders above the rest”
Stuart Middleton– “I’m happy to have my plans in place so early. I learnt a lot in my first season last year and I think last weekend showed that both Douglas Motorsport and I will be a force to be reckoned with in 2016″
Wayne Douglas– Team Principal Douglas Motorsport- “I’m delighted that Stuart is staying with us for 2016. He was hugely impressive in his debut season as witnessed by his dominant performance at the Winter Series. He is ready to win the title in 2016 and so are we.”
