With a typically storming last to third place podium finish drive, at Pittsburgh International Race Complex, Australia's Scott Andrews has completed a record-breaking season by clinching the F1600 Formula F Championship with two races to spare at the Pittsburgh International Race Complex.

After claiming pole for the opening heat of the three-race meeting, Andrews spun on the pace lap before finishing third behind Jordan Cane and Robert Megennis.

The Exclusive Autosport Spectrum driver was forced to start from last following his spin, triggered when he was warming up his tyres.

“I managed to run out of talent coming out of pit lane,” said Andrews.

“I spun it warming up the tyres. As much as I wanted to go back through the field to regain my starting spot I knew I would get a penalty after that.

“So I decided against it. Hopefully with a few new parts in the car I could have got close to the win, which we did. I didn’t quite get there, but a podium is a great way to cap off the year & championship. I am absolutely stoked with the team.

“I saw the front three battling very hard,” he continued. “I thought if they were going three wide somewhere I might get an opportunity to maybe snag a win.

“Unfortunately there was a bit of contact with Skylar (Robinson) who was still in the running for the championship. I hate to see him go out like that but with that it means we clinch the title. So I could not be happier.”
