Middlehurst our favourite Formula Renault driver has claimed an
early lead this year after finishing 1st in Race 1 and 2nd in
Race 2 in the 2013 Protyre Formula Renault Championship at
Donington Park on Sunday.
Well done Chris! Keep it up!
Two of our clients joined forces recently at the Goodwood
Festival of Speed. Classic Team Lotus gave a very special
opportunity to Chris Middlehurst. He drove the historic Lotus 72 F1
Car (Emerson Fittipaldi's Championship Wining Car) through the
famous Goodwood grounds.
The 101 Website Design
& Development sponsored driver also drove the Lotus 92
(Nigel Mansell's car) which is privately owned by Roger Wills. To
drive a classic Lotus and to drive at the Goodwood Festival of
Speed are both great honours for any driver and to do both in one
day must have been very special for Chris.
For more information on Classic Team Lotus and how they keep
these historic Lotus' looking as good as the day they first raced
you can visit their website.

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.
