2015 MSA British Rallycross Championship leader Andy Scott is looking to extend his lead in the MSA Supercars category as he gets back behind the wheel in the double header weekend at Mondello Park.
In what is a mammoth season for Albatec Racing which sees them competing full time in the British series and the FIA European Rallycross Championship as well as selected rounds of the French Rallycross and the FIA World Rallycross Championships, Scott is relishing the chance to score more points and guide the Peugeot 208 RX Supercar to two more wins to extend his advantage.
With James Grint on duty at the Goodwood Festival in the sister car taking on the hillclimb, Scott will compete on his own against a competitive field of Supercar regulars from both BritishRX and the Irish Rallycross series and as previous events have shown, the Albatec Peugeot he will pilot is the same one that Jerome Grosset-Janin has used to lead the drivers championship in EuroRX.
“I’m really pleased to be getting back behind the wheel and going head to head against the best of British and Irish rallycross racers this weekend, at undoubtedly one of the best tracks on the British RX schedule. I’m also delighted to be welcoming one of our sponsors Motis Ireland and their guests for their first visit to a rallycross event, hopefully Marc and myself can put on a good show for them, in front of the estimated 10,000 spectators, and come away with a couple of wins apiece.”
Whilst Andy Scott leads the Supercar class, Marc Scott is looking to overhaul Chrissy Palmer for the points lead in the RX150 Class.
“I’m looking forward to getting to Mondello Park, it’s a track I like very much, I’ve raced there three times before, and it’s very fast and very enjoyable. I’m a little bit on the back foot points wise, but I’m more determined than ever to win to get me back in the title hunt. I was very disappointed to spin away the win at Pembrey, however there’s still a long way to go in this championship and although Chrissy and the others are chasing hard, I certainly haven’t given up yet.”
