Ed­wards gets guest Scot­tish Mini out­ing

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Jade Ed­wards will be the latest guest driver to race in the Scot­tish Mini Cooper Cup at Knock­hill as part of a char­ity ini­tia­tive.

The 25-year-old com­peted in Bri­tish GT last sea­son and was part of the As­ton Martin Evolution Academy.

She will now race for Min­i­max Motorsport this week­end as part of a fundrais­ing cam­paign for Chil­drens Hospice As­so­ci­a­tion Scot­land.

“This is a bril­liant ini­tia­tive,” said Ed­wards. “The idea is to get guest driv­ers through­out the year to raise the pro­file of CHAS, lead­ing to a raf­fle where the Mini Cooper race car can be won.

“The Celtic Mini Cooper Cup is highly com­pet­i­tive and it will be my first time rac­ing at Knock­hill but the cars look awe­some and I’m look­ing for­ward to get­ting stuck into some one-make rac­ing.”

Bri­tish Tour­ing Car racer Ai­den Mof­fat was a guest driver in the pre­vi­ous round.
