Mof­fat makes re­turn to Scot­tish Mi­nis, and you could win his car

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Bri­tish Tour­ing Car driver Aiden Mof­fat re­turned to his roots last week­end with a guest drive in the Celtic Speed Scot­tish Mini Cooper Cup at Knock­hill.

The one-off drive was to pro­mote a fundrais­ing cam­paign for CHAS (Chil­dren’s Hospice As­so­ci­a­tion Scotland), which will in­clude the car be­ing raf­fled off at the end of the sea­son.

Mof­fat quickly reestab­lished him­self in a wet qual­i­fy­ing ses­sion, in which he took pole po­si­tion by just 0.093s. De­spite the dif­fi­cult con­di­tions, Mof­fat felt there was more per­for­mance left to find in the car which he de­scribed as “a tad dif­fer­ent” from his BTCC Mercedes-benz A-class.

De­spite a slow get­away, Mof­fat came home sec­ond in the open­ing race be­hind win­ner Kyle Reid. He was caught up in a clash in race two and re­tired with a tech­ni­cal is­sue on the fi­nale.

“I’m a bit dis­ap­pointed,” said Mof­fat. “The con­di­tions in qual­i­fy­ing were a lot worse and the car was work­ing well then. I told the team to leave it as it was be­cause it had felt good but the con­di­tions had changed and the tyres didn’t dig in. It was still a fun week­end though.”
