But Sandy, personally backed by Huntly-based Black Bull Scotch Whisky, Tunnocks, Lamborghini Edinburgh, Upper Dysart and Alan Davie Transport, knows he faces an additional challenge this weekend.
“Because we finished second at Silverstone, we have to serve a 15-second success penalty at the final pitstop, so that will add to the challenges we face,” he continued. But Donington generally suits the Lamborghini very well because it’s a fast circuit, especially down through the Craner Curves. It’s one of the most exhilarating sections of track anywhere in Europe and the circuit allows us to really maximise the strengths of the car. If Shaun and I can deliver a good qualifying performance and stay out of trouble on the opening laps, we have every chance of another strong podium finish.”
