We are proud to sponsor a rising star in the motorsport world, Chris Middlehurst. Chris races in the 2012 Protyre Formula Renault BARC championship for Middlehurst Motorsport. Chris' father, Andy Middlehurst was a successful racer on both two and four wheels. In the early 80's he competed in Formula Ford racing wheel to wheel with the likes of Ayrton Senna before switching to Saloon Car Racing. Chris' career is already impressive; he won the 2011 Formula Ford 1600 Championship and the 2011 North West Formula Ford 1600 Championship. All this in just his first season after graduating from Go Karts.
Chris contested his first race weekend of the year over the Easter bank holiday and despite reliability issues managed to score a solid haul of points. The Norfolk weather was less than pleasant but Chris kept a cool head and kept his Formula Renault pointing in the right direction.
Look out for Chris in the future.
