Motorsport history as Renault ZOE makes debut

SCOTTISH motorsport history was made at Kames Motorsport Complex, Muirkirk on Sunday, September 23 during the Albar Trophy Rally.

Welshman Cameron Davies took to the track in his Renault ZOE, the first electric car to compete in a motorsport competition in Scotland.

A respectable finish followed for Davies who spent most of the day explaining the characteristics of the car to competitors and spectators alike.

The rally season at Kames ended in a convincing win for Trabboch’s Colin Gemmell and co-driver Derek Keir from Ayr in their 2.5 litre Mk2 Ford Escort.

Graham Bruce, from Sundrum and Paul Toner were runners-up in a similar car with another East Ayrshire Car Club crew David McLeod and Eamonn Boyle third in a hard-worked Talbot Sunbeam.

Their was a photo finish in the junior section as Oliver Hunter and Tom Hynd (Peugeot 107) beat Lewis Haining and George Myatt (Skoda Citigo) by one second.
