Turriff racing driver Gordon Mutch is revving up for a big weekend of televised action.
Mutch, 16, races in the Ginetta GT5 championship along with adult drivers, with races usually held alongside the British GT series.
However, this weekend the Ginetta GT5 will provide the support racing for the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) at Knockhill.
The BTCC is live on ITV4 and is one of the most popular race series in the world.
Gordon, pictured, said: “I’m looking forward to it because it’s the only Ginetta GT5 championship round in Scotland.
“Of course, Knockhill overall, even if it wasn’t a British Touring Car Championship round, is highly enjoyable to drive. You’re on two wheels for most of the lap because of the elevation changes.
“It makes for a very interesting lap because you’ve always got work to do.”
The young driver, now based in Lockerbie, thinks the intensity of the action will be higher than usual because of the TV crews and bumper crowds.
However, he’s still aiming for good finish.
Gordon said: “GT5 is an extremely competitive grid with professional drivers or drivers on the verge of becoming professional. Some are past champions, some are past British GT drivers.
“But testing last week went really well so we want to be in the top 10 or top five.
“I think with the cameras and being a BTCC round with the extra spectators, it makes things a bit messier.
“People become a little bit desperate to get a bit of air time so it can create situations that wouldn’t always be present.
“A track like Knockhill can be a bit about luck as well. But we’re looking really quick. I believe I can do it and the team have put a really good car together to help me do it.
“I’d like to thank my sponsors, John Clark Motor Group, Balmoral Group, Glasgow Construction Group and Tyre Express Service Lockerbie, as well as my team, Fox Motorsport, and all of my other supporters.”
