It was party time for Luke Herbert as he attended the annual Mazda MX-5 Night of Champions to collect his championship trophy for the 2019 season, after a long and hard-fought campaign against his main rivals

Herbert's third title was arguably the toughest of the lot as he had to fend off constant pressure from main front runners Jack Harding and Aidan Hills throughout the entire campaign. All three drivers took a win each from the first two weekends, but it was here that Herbert's win tally came to a temporary halt as he would miss out on victories at Anglesey and Croft. He found the top step again at Brands Hatch and from there picked up at least 1 win at the remaining three meetings at Silverstone and the two Donington Park encounters. Even though the title was only resolved on the last day of competition, Herbert made sure he consistently racked up as many points as possible on the days he missed out on the top step to give him the crown come season's end. A 4th title attempt is still up in the air at this stage, however we're sure Luke will reveal his plans in due course.

Unfortunately, 2nd an 3rd placed drivers Jack Harding and Aidan Hills were unable to attend in person on the night, so their trophies were collected by fellow SuperCup racers David Henderson and Christopher Richardson on their behalf instead. The Masters top 3 was represented by champion Garry Townsend, collecting his second class title in successive years and Nick Rutter who picked up his own accolade for 2nd place as well as representing 3rd place man George Grant.
