Biography of Scott Andrews

Scott began racing go-karts in 2005 at the age of 10 with the Geelong Karting Club, which was local to his hometown of Torquay on Victoria's West Coast.

After 'learning the ropes' in karts, in 2009 he graduated to the Australian Commodore Cup Series, winning Rookie of the Year on a 'shoe-string' budget. The following year, still racing with restricted funds, he placed fourth overall in the highly competitive national championship.

In 2011, Scott qualified on pole position four times and won two races in the Victorian Formula Ford 1600 Championship. He also won the Formula Ford 1600 class in the Formula Ford Trophy Race at the 'Phillip Island Magic' race meeting.

Despite continued funding restrictions, this year Scott qualified on pole position, won two races and set a new lap record in the Formula Ford races supporting the V8 Supercars rounds at Barbagallo Raceway in West Australia.

He also made an impressive international racing debut in the USF2000 Championship rounds at Laguna Seca, California.

When Scott isn't racing, he works as a driver coach and 'hot laps' driver at racetrack days such as Mercedes-Benz Australia Driving Experience, Fastrack Racing and Drive Events.

Scott's motorsport career has been characterised by his ability to unfamiliar cars at lap record pace with minimal practice - often on unfamiliar racetracks.

His career goal is to become a professional racing driver, either in Australia or overseas.

JDC Motorsports

Involved in formula car racing since its inception in 1994, JDC MotorSports has established itself as one of the leading junior open-wheel teams in North America. Initially making its mark in the F2000 class of club racing competition, JDC MotorSports was soon a team worth watching in the pro ranks. Competing in the Formula Ford 2000 Zetec Championship, the team not only won races, but also helped develop multiple young drivers.

In 2005, JDC MotorSports expanded its efforts, entering the Star Mazda Championship. Quickly becoming one of the top teams in the series, JDC captured both the driver and team titles in 2007, as well as Rookie of the Year honors, with Dane Cameron scoring a series-high three wins. In 2008, JDC MotorSports was the runner-up in the Star Mazda Championship and finished fourth in its inaugural season of F2000 Championship Series competition.

The Minnesota-based team won the Star Mazda Championship title with Rookie of the Year Adam Christodoulou, and the F2000 Championship Series title with Chris Miller in 2009. This past year, JDC continued its winning ways, earning the Rookie of the Year award in the Star Mazda Championship with Connor De Phillippi, and scoring a non-points win in the USF2000 National Championship. The Minneapolis-based squad will compete in the Star Mazda Championship, USF2000 National Championship and Prototype Lites Championship in 2011 via multi-car operations.
