Scot­tish Compact Cup cham­pion Dailly to English se­ries

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Reign­ing Scot­tish BMW Compact Cup cham­pion Steven Dailly will con­test the English se­ries this year, con­tin­u­ing with the KC Mo­tor­sport team.

The 24-year-old dom­i­nated in 2015, win­ning all 16 races, and will now switch to the English cat­e­gory af­ter de­cid­ing against a move to the Ginetta GT5 Chal­lenge.

Dailly said that he didn’t quite have the bud­get to com­plete the Bri­tish GT sup­port cat­e­gory, and will in­stead learn English tracks in a car he’s fa­mil­iar with.

“I de­cided to go and do the English se­ries to get some track knowl­edge,” he said. “It’s a car we know very well and know ex­actly what to do with it.

“My tar­get is to win but be­ing re­al­is­tic, it would be good to get a top three in the cham­pi­onship. I was the most ex­pe­ri­enced driver in the Scot­tish Compact Cup so go­ing into the English cham­pi­onship as a new guy will be a tall or­der.”
