Jamie Caroline has been officially confirmed as the winner of the 2015 KICK Start Energy Drink Ginetta Junior Championship.
The official result comes after the MSA Court of Appeal rejected an appeal made by Stuart Middleton during the season finale at Brands Hatch, because it does not meet the requirements of MSA General Regulation C7.1.3.
Middleton was handed a post-race time penalty for a jump start in the race, which demoted him behind Caroline in the race results and meant the latter ended the year level on points with title rival Senna Proctor.
Caroline therefore took the provisional title by virtue of securing more race wins, with Proctor - who would have been champion had the initial race result stood - been forced to settle for second.
An appeal from Middleton into the result was rejected by stewards at the circuit before being taken to the MSA Court, who rejected the appeal bid and upheld the original penalty.
As such, the amended result and championship standings are now declared official.
