The original Middendorp Electric Oakleigh branch, one of the first five Middy’s branches, was opened in 1961 to service Oakleigh and the growing south eastern suburbs.

On 28 June at the BP Ultimate Sydney SuperSprint, Bryce surprised even himself by clinching his first top 10 solo result in his Supercars Championship career.

Bryce had this to say, “If someone had said to me ‘you’re going to come 10th’ going into this weekend I would have told them you’re kidding."
