Goodwood date for rally team

A DUMFRIES rally team is making a guest appearance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend.

The three-day festival’s theme this year is ‘Flat Out and Fearless: Racing on the Edge’ and Albatec Racing’s Euro RX driver James Grint will take the wheel of his 600 bhp Peugeot 208 RX supercar to negotiate the famous hillclimb.
Team principal Andy Scott, who is delighted the team is leading the FIA European Rallycross Championship and MSA British Rallycross Championship, said: “It’s fantastic to have our Albatec Peugeot 208 RX at Goodwood Festival of Speed this year.
“I would love to be there myself to watch it, however I’m busy competing in the double-header British RX round at Mondello Park.
“I’m sure James and the rest of the team will represent Albatec in the best possible way though, and have a great weekend.”
And Grint says he is also ‘really excited’ to be part of the Goodwood Festival of Speed this year.
He added: “I’ve been going to the show since I was about six years old and I have always dreamt that I would be one of the racing drivers screaming up the famous Goodwood hillclimb – now my dream is becoming a reality.”
