Scott Takes Nostalgic Win At Knockhill

1 Mins read

Andy Scott stood on the top step of the podium at Knockhill on Sunday after what he called a ‘nostalgic’ victory in his guest appearance in the MSA Monster Energy British Rallycross Championship.

Scott, who is normally seen both racing for and managing the Albatec Racing Team in the FIA European Rallycross Championship, marked his one and only appearance on home soil this year with an emphatic overall victory at the Scottish circuit in the same Peugeot 306 in which he took his first overall Supercar victory.

Scott, who has just tested Albatec’s new Peugeot 208 for competing in the newly re-branded Rallycross RX, asserted himself in practice with the second fastest time. He then powered his way to a victory in the first heat, as well as a second and a fourth place in the following rounds to ensure his place in the final.

Then, cheered by a crowd of family and friends, Scott held off Julian Godfrey and Pat Doran to clinch outright victory in the final.

Scott said: “I have to say this was one of the best weekends of my short career, and one of the most nostalgic. [This] is a great boost ahead of the next event, the third round of the Rallycross RX in Hungary.

With so much support from family and friends, it was an amazing atmosphere and even the weather couldn’t dampen my spirits right now.

Now though we get back to the serious business of continuing our bid for FIA European Rallycross Championship honours in Hungary and the remaining rounds of Rallycross RX, where myself and Michaël [de Keersmaecker] will field the team’s two Albatec Peugeot 208s.
