The achievements of this season’s British GT4 Champions, were recognised at the BRDC Awards earlier today in London where Stuart Middleton and Will Tregurtha, became the latest recipients of some very special silverware.
Unlike SRO’s ceremony in Paris 10 days ago, where the GT4 champions collected their respective trophies, the British Racing Drivers’ Club’s annual equivalent compared and recognised the outstanding achievements of members competing across all forms of motorsport at home and abroad.
Tregurtha and Middleton made history by becoming the first joint winners of the Henry Surtees Trophy, which acknowledges the most outstanding performance by a BRDC Rising Star. And what a performance it was: British GT’s youngest ever title-winning crew in terms of combined age and points total that single-handedly won HHC Motorsport the GT4 Teams’ crown, and a one-two finish in the Sunoco Whelen Challenge.
“I feel incredibly privileged to accept an award like this and to be considered amongst the BRDC’s brightest prospects,” said Middleton, whose Sunoco Whelen Challenge Championship victory sees him travel to America later this week for a Daytona 24 Hours seat fitting. “I think I can also speak for Will when I say neither of us could have predicted we’d be in this position 12 months ago. Drivers like Daniel Ricciardo have previously won the Henry Surtees Trophy, so it’s incredible to have our names alongside people like him.”
