GT racer Scott to run his­torics

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Suc­cess­ful GT racer Aaron Scott and race en­gi­neer Kieran Houldsworth have teamed up to form Akron Sport, a new team op­er­at­ing in His­toric F1 and Group C rac­ing.

The out­fit, based in Sut­ton Cold­field, is al­ready pre­par­ing two F1 cars and two Group C cars, in­clud­ing those of Ir­ish­man Tommy Dree­lan. A Wil­liams FW08 and a Porsche 962 are cur­rently with the team.

“We’re look­ing to take on more his­toric cars and it makes sense to con­cen­trate on F1 and Group C cars of that era,” said Scott, who also works as the team’s driver coach.
