Alex Morgan gave a supreme performance at his first taste of the challenging Mugello circuit.
In the latest action-packed round of the SEAT León Eurocup championship, the Welsh-born driver racing for Wolf-Power racing, managed to claim his third podium in three race weekends.
Italian crowds were treated to a thrilling display of wheel-to-wheel, edge of seat racing, as Alex extended his string of point scoring positions. Unnerved by his first outing in Mugello, Alex relished the challenge where his formidable pace saw him qualify on the second row of the grid for race one.
Mastering his tyres beautifully from the start, the Reading-based driver maintained his position with eyes focused on hunting down a podium towards the end of the race. Hindered by the addition of a safety car, which minimised his tyre advantage, Alex used his hunger and determination to chase down the leaders in an exhilarating final two laps.
With just three corners to go until the end of the race, Alex fought his way through to clinch a valuable third step on the podium, in a stunning exhibition of his pure aptitude for racing.
