Gordie en­joys out­ing to Sil­ver­stone event

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - SPORTS -

Gordie Mutch is pre­par­ing for his fi­nal Ju­nior Saloon Car Cham­pi­onship meet­ing of the sea­son next week­end.

His last meet­ing at Don­ning­ton didn’t go to plan as he was rear ended re­sult­ing in a shunt into the tire wall.

KC Mo­tor­sport changed out the en­gine in just over two hours be­tween prac­tice and qual­i­fy­ing as a last re­sort but with no im­prove­ment.

The pos­i­tive for the Locker­bie lad was he had to utilise a slightly dif­fer­ent driv­ing style to de­fend or pass other driv­ers who have vis­i­bly quicker cars and his tim­ing had to be spot on.

Now he will be look­ing for a pos­i­tive end for the cam­paign at Brands Hatch.

On a more pos­i­tive note Gordie was in­vited to Sil­ver­stone to watch the Ecurie Ecosse LMP3 car in ac­tion.

The stun­ning mo­tor se­cured the Hen­der­son In­sur­ance bro­kers LLMP3 Cup cham­pi­onship in the hands of Alas­dair McCaig (Ecurie Ecosse Di­rec­tor) and Colin Noble who is the other driver in the Ecurie Ecosse young driver pro­gramme along with Gordie.

The 15-year-old learned a great deal from the day and the team of Niel­son Rac­ing gave him some guid­ance.

And the up-and-com­ing rac­ing star will be tak­ing part in an event along with John Clark OBE, the chair­man of the John Clark Mo­tor Group for an event in Gordie’s na­tive Aberdeen.

The John Clark Mo­tor Group have backed the for­mer Tur­riff mo­tor­sport pro­tégé for a num­ber of years and he is thank­ful for the sup­port.

The event takes place on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 21.
