RSAC Motorsport Ltd is pleased to announce that Libberton rally driver, Andy Struthers (17) has been awarded its 2015 New Talent Scholarship.
The Curtis Bros Fitness Studio backed driver has been competing for three years in the Junior 1000 Rally Championship.
“I love driving, the J1000 Championship was my first experience of competitive rallying and the Ecosse Challenge will be the next stage in what I hope will be a long journey.” Andy commented.
Andy will now step up to competing in the Scottish Rally Championship with the help of Andrew Pemberton, who will be supplying the young driver with his own Citroen C2 for the first round of the championship which kicks off on the 21st March in Jedburgh. Andy said, “I am overwhelmed to have been chosen for the scholarship and I cannot thank Andrew enough for letting me borrow his car.”
This will be the first year the Citroen C2 class has been introduced to the championship. The reason for this is to allow the Junior 1000 drivers to have something to step up to after competing in single venues until they are 17 years old. At an open night at the weekend Andy got a chance to speak to the committee, he said, “Already from my first meeting with the committee at the C2 open evening I am aware of how much I am going to benefit from the vast wealth of experience that is surrounding me.”
RSAC Member and chair of the Scholarship Selection Committee Garry Headridge added, “We are pleased to offer Andy the RSAC Scholarship. I have seen him develop in the Brick & Steel Junior 1000 Championship and look forward to working with him as he makes the move into the ARR Craib MSA Scottish Rally Championship. We wish him, and Pete Weall, the best of luck for the Border Counties Rally on 21 March'”
Rallying runs in the Struthers family, Andy’s father Drew competed in the Scottish Rally Championship and will be able to share his experience with the talented driver as he enters the next stage in the sport.
Andy will compete throughout the year aiming to achieve top points for the teenage category within the C2 Championship.
We will be following Andy throughout the year and reporting on his season.
