Ginetta can today confirm that Ginetta Junior Scholarship winner Stuart Middleton will run as part of the Douglas Motorsport team in the 2015 KICK Start Energy Ginetta Junior Championship.
15 year old Middleton won a fully funded season in the KICK Start Energy Ginetta Junior Championship in October after impressing across the board in his driving, fitness and media assessments.
Middleton said;“The KICK Start Energy Ginetta Junior Championship is the ideal route to move from karting into cars. It’s the perfect platform to gain invaluable race experience and driving skills to progress my driving career, and Douglas Motorsport have the credentials to support that.”
Douglas Motorsport joined the Ginetta paddock in 2012, and were a force to be reckoned with from the outset, taking the ‘Ginetta Junior Teams Championship’ title in their maiden year, thanks to a number of race wins, podiums and lap records throughout the season, before they ran Keith Donegan to second in the championship in 2013.
Wayne Douglas, owner of Douglas Motorsport added;“We are delighted to be running Stuart Middleton this season. He showed blistering pace at the Ginetta Junior Scholarship and really impressed us during a pre-season test, so we’re set for what looks like another strong year with our junior team.”
On top of his 2015 racing season, Middleton will receive a media training session with Louise as part of her Goodman Media outfit as well as a half-day assessment at iZone driver performance centre at Silverstone.
