Aaron scores points at Silverstone

"Weybridge race ace Aaron Scott contested rounds 4 & 5 of the Elf Clio Renault sport UK cup at Silverstone on the bank Holiday weekend in his Tim Norton Motorsport car.

In Saturdays qualifying session Scott qualified in 13th spot for both races admitting to not making the most of his Omnico backed car during the session.

For race 1 Aaron drove a fantastic race to work his way in to 9th place by the chequered flag. He said, " I had a mega race today - this is the first race in the Clio where I have been able to dice with cars and I enjoyed myself out there!"

In race 2 Aaron drove a storming opening lap, in front of the 10,000 strong crowd, to move into 8th place at the end of the first lap. Aaron moved into 7th before the safety car came out. The race restarted with 5 laps to go and Aaron settled in to 7th place before being rudely shoved out at Copse corner with a few laps to go. Aaron recovered to finish 14th and salvage a few points in the title race.

After the race Aaron said, " I am very pleased to be able to run with the leading pack today. We were on for a top 6 finish for sure. I was very angry to be punted out, especially as the team have worked so hard and really deserved a result. I'm looking forward, as ever to the next few races and I think we have showed we can mix it at the front. "

The next race for the team is at Thruxton, another double header on June 15/16.
