Saskatoon, Saskatchewan – Saskatoon, Saskatchewan – Australia's Scott Andrews will drive in this weekend’s Formula Tour 1600 event at Circuit Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, Canada on Saturday 25th – Sunday 26th of July.
Exclusive Autosport will field a pair of entries in this weekend’s Formula Tour 1600 event with Andrews and Parker Thompson driving for the reigning championship-winning team.
Of the upcoming race weekend, Scott said, 'so far, its been a dream season for me in the US ... we're now leading the championships by 190 points, the car Exclusive Autosport has given me is amazing and I couldn't be happier with the team and with Exclusive Management. I'd like to extend a thanks to Team Principal Michael Duncalfe too ...we are in a good place right now',
This will be my first race in Canada and its a place Ive always wanted to go to and to race at...so we are super excited. Like with a few other tracks this year, such as Watkins Glen and Mid-Ohio, the circuit is a new one for me but we went there and won and so I'm aiming for high results again'
It will be cool to race with Parker too...we have alot of respect for each other ... I cant wait".
Andrews will make his first starts at both Circuit Mont-Tremblant and in the Formula Tour F1600 Series this weekend.
The 24-year-old currently leads the US-based F1600 Formula F Championship Series competing for Exclusive Autosport.
Andrews broke the single-season record for most wins in the series earlier this month at Mid-Ohio, recording his seventh win of 2015 and the eighth in total for Exclusive Autosport, another series record.
Scott (@scottandrews44): #94 Exclusive Autosport / Exclusive Management Inc. / Automobility PTY Ltd / Andrews Automotive / Spectrum / Sparco / Honda Racing HPD said: “I’m pumped that I’m going racing in the team’s home country. We’re enjoying a lot of success together in the US at the moment and I hope we can emulate that at Circuit Mont-Tremblant. I know the team’s pedigree in the series and I’d love to add my name to the list of winners for them in Canada. It’s always fun to sample competition in another series and learn a new circuit. I’ve heard a lot about the track and can’t wait to get up there.”
Thompson returns following a stellar debut in the series at the previous Formula Tour round at Circuit ICAR two weeks back piloting the #92 Exclusive Autosport / Spectrum / Honda HPD entry. The 17-year-old from Red Deer, Alberta powered his way to a pair of F1600 victories at the Mirabel track, his first ever wins in open-wheel racing, having signed to race with Exclusive Autosport earlier that same week.
Exclusive Autosport has now won three out of the four Formula Tour 1600 races entered in 2015.
“I’m excited to be fielding both Scott and Parker up at Circuit Mont-Tremblant this weekend,” commented Team Principal Michael Duncalfe.
“Scott’s already proved that learning circuits is one of his strengths and he is having a stellar season in the F1600 Formula F Championship in America. I’m excited that he’s going to come race with us in Canada for the weekend. He’s obviously enjoying a phenomenal season and I expect him to be no less competitive racing in Quebec. I look forward to seeing Scott and Parker represent the team and Spectrum chassis at Tremblant.
