Scor­pio to de­lay its MSA For­mula en­try

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Scor­pio Mo­tor­sport will not take part in the first few rounds of the Ford MSA For­mula sea­son but plans a two-car en­try later in the year.

The team didn’t com­pete in the cat­e­gory in 2015 but has two driv­ers lined up for this sea­son. How­ever bud­get con­cerns and school com­mit­ments mean they are un­able to start the year.

“I think we will have two driv­ers later in the year, just not from be­gin­ning,” said team boss Jon Pet­titt. “I don’t go into any cham­pi­onship to be at the back and want to make sure they’re ready.”

Scor­pio will also run a two-litre For­mula Re­nault car in the Mono­posto se­ries this year for for­mer Mazda MX-5 racer James Har­ris.

“It will be a dif­fer­ent chal­lenge to race mainly against F3 cars,” said Pet­titt.

“We need to do some­thing with the Re­nault cars since the BARC cham­pi­onship died.”

Scor­pio still has MSA cars
