Young Victorian driver, Arron Windus, will be looking for a consistent run as he travels to Europe to tackle this weekend’s RSAC Scottish Rally.

The Scottish gravel roads form round three of the Prestone MSA British Rally Championship, and mark Arron’s first time back in a Vauxhall since May last year.

After campaigning a Vauxhall Adam R2 for three British rounds in 2016, Windus is keen to compete in the new ADAM Cup car.

“It's a new concept of car on gravel, so we will be treating the rally as a true test for the car,” Windus said.

“It has a huge amount of potential and is already a really well balanced car.”

Though the ADAM Cup car is a lower spec than the ADAM R2, Windus, along with British co-driver, Richard Crozier, have their goals firmly set.

“This weekend we are fully focused on winning our class and trying to mix it with the faster R2 cars.”

Asked whether there would be future European event this season, Windus was skeptical.

“Going into this event we don't have anything further locked in, so I think we need to use the ‘Ricky Bobby’ attitude this weekend – ‘If you ain't first, you’re last’.

“We will be hoping to spark some interest to continue over here,” he said.

Further up the field, the British Rally Championship field will be headed by championship leader Fredrik Ahlin (Skoda Fabia R5), Osian Pryce (Ford Fiesta R5) and Tom Cave (Hyundai i20 R5).

The Scottish Rally will cover just under 120km competitive, and can be followed via the BRC website.
