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