Waiting, Racing and Ice Driving

It’s that waiting period in motorsport.

The period that sees drivers pacing up and down. They’re deep in winter training, the team is hard at work behind them preparing the car. The sponsors are happy and looking forward to seeing their driver perform at the first race of the season.

So Scott is waiting. Waiting with more anticipation than ever before.

This season, Scott is racing in the Ginetta GT5 Challenge once again. After a roller coaster of a season in 2018, with elating highs and also some tough times, he’s looking forward to being prepared as never before with tremendous support from his sponsors, his supporters and his new team, Xentek Motorsport.

Xentek Motorsport have a superb track record racing with Ginetta, having been GT5 runners up in 2014 and 2015, 2016 team and driver’s champions, then Ginetta Supercup Am Champions in 2017.

“I am only a few seasons into my racing career, however one of the most important lessons I have learnt is working within a team. A driver must have the ultimate confidence in the team around him. Xentek has a track record of success in this championship that will inspire me to give my very best. I can’t wait for April”

Of course one of the most vital elements of modern motorsport is funding. To compete in a national championship requires financial support and without the continued backing of Scott’s sponsors, there would be no racing this year. Rocket Medical, Helland Barton Hideaways, AVS Fencing, WatchGecko, Anne Gibson Financial Services are continuing their support in 2019.

Continuing alongside is Anne Gibson Financial Services, part of of St. James Place Wealth Management.
Anne is certainly looking forward to seeing the season begin. “I’m so very proud and privileged to be sponsoring Scott for a second year. He is an absolute inspiration, unbelievably determined, focused, hard working and so very well deserving of everything that he has achieved so far. I am very excited to watch him showcase his skills this season. Good Luck Scott!”

And as we write this in February, Scott is preparing for his winter season in Norway, working with the family business of Ice Driver, the venue where he learned his car control and race craft from an early age.

“I’m spending 7 weeks in Norway this year, driving and working with clients on the frozen lakes. After all of the work behind the scenes getting everything in place for the first race in April, Scandinavia is going to be a combination of lots of hard work and also the chance to perfect my skills as the season gets closer.”
