Race - Ross Wylie at Knockhill

Refuelling in Uddingston … at the home of the Tunnock’s Teacake and Caramel Wafer.

Leading GT Cup Championship contender Ross Wylie switched categories for last month’s British Formula 1 Grand Prix at Silverstone. This time the Brabham / Mercedes Benz AMG / Ferrari driver made his debut in the Porsche Mobil 1 Supercup race supporting the F1 GP race card. First time out in the Richardson Racing Porsche 911 GT3 Cup car, the Thornhill driver finished 16th overall in a field of 32 cars.

He'll be hoping to finish further up the field this weekend (12/13 August) when the Supercup series moves to Knockhill to support the British Touring Car Championship race weekend at the Fife circuit.

On his way north, Ross stopped off at Tunnock’s Bakeries in Uddingston to ‘re-fuel’! Amongst regular sponsors, The Glenturret, AL-2 Teknik UK, PyroDry and Carronbridge Sawmill, Tunnock’s had joined the Dumfries & Galloway based team to fly the Saltire for this one-off outing at Silverstone in front of the huge (over 400,000) crowd.

The livery will remain on the car for this weekend so Ross paid a visit in person to thank Tunnock’s for their support last month and was greeted by top World Rally Championship Co-driver and Tunnock’s chief biscuit engineer, Stuart Loudon, who was on hand to check out the Porsche.

So if you're visiting Knockhill this weekend, give Ross a cheer in the Flying Teacake!
