Bad luck plagues Aaron Scott in Round 8 of the British GT Championship
Master Motorsport team retires despite a strong qualifying time

Surrey race ace Aaron Scott (www.aaronscott.co.uk), and his Master Motorsport team mate Steven Brady, were at Rockingham Motor Speedway on Sunday 3rd August for round 8 of the BRDC British GT Championship, where a huge 44,000 strong crowd enjoyed the event.

Things were looking promising following a strong showing in Round 7 at Oulton Park, and testing went well throughout Friday in preparation for Sunday's race. Further progress was made on Saturday where, during qualifying, Brady set the 6th fastest time. Then disaster struck as a major engine fault destroyed the oil pump leaving the team with only a handful of completed qualifying laps.

Master Motorsport engineers worked very hard overnight to rebuild the engine and the car was able to take up its position on the grid. However at the end of lap three, the Omnico sponsored car lost oil pressure and was forced into an early retirement.

Aaron Scott said, "We are all very disappointed with the result today, especially after the promise we showed at Oulton Park. The car had a lot more potential than we were able to show. We hope to have a new engine for Thruxton and I am confident we will be back on form there in 2 weeks time."

The next race is at Thruxton in Hampshire on August 17th 2003.
