Albatec Racing kick of British Rallycross season on a high

1 Mins read

Albatec Racing Team Principal Andy Scott began his challenge for the 2015 MSA British Rallycross Championship in style by winning Round One at Croft.

The Dumfries driver, who will be joined by team-mate Mark Flaherty for Round Two from Lydden Hill onwards, took victory in Heats One and Two at the wheel of his Peugeot 208 Supercar whilst he chased home Heat Three winner Kevin Proctor to finish second. Scott then went on to take a lights-to-flag victory from Ollie O’Donovan and Proctor in the six lap Supercar Final ahead of a strong field of Supercars entered for the 2015 British Championship.

Scott showed he had carried on the good form in the Peugeot after a 2014 campaign where he competed in the FIA World Rallycross Championship and took Heat Wins as well as progessing to the Semi-Final stages against WorldRX’s best. Albatec Racing have so far confirmed a two-car assault on the British Rallycross Championship as well as a two car assault on the 2015 FIA European Rallycross Championship with Frenchman Jerome Grosset-Janin confirmed so far.

Scott was very happy with his victory at Croft, saying: “What a great way to start the season. The car was great all day, all the team worked really hard to rebuild a car capable of victory and everything went according to plan.

“At Lydden we’ll also have Mark (Flaherty) out for his first event of the year, and I’m looking forward to building on these great results as we bid for the title.”

Marc Scott suffered a difficult start to his RX150 Title defence after a gearbox issue hampered his bid for a hat-trick of titles following two dominant seasons in RX150s. Scott netted a third and second place but saw he failed to finish the Final.

Marc Scott was upbeat about his performances at Croft, saying: “The weekend didn’t go quite as we planned with a gearbox issue that started in heat one, which hampered our chances overall, but I fully expect to have the new buggy ready for the next race at Lydden Hill.

“It’s a long season, with some great tracks to come, so I’ll be pushing hard to get my championship bid underway next time out.”

Round Two of the 2015 British Rallycross Championship takes place at Lydden Hill in Kent over the Easter Weekend of April 4-6.
