Largs racing driver Glenn Alcock is stepping up the gears as he will be getting behind the wheel for the new racing season as a Scottish Formula Ford Driver.

The 41 year old will be teaming up in new partnership between the Scottish Motor Racing Club, West College Scotland and the Scottish Motor Trade Association on the circuit.
The partnership will support student’s development and shine a spotlight on single seater racing in Scotland, with the West College Scotland Formula Ford.
Glenn, who had one previous outing in Formula Ford in 2019, can't wait to move up to top gear in this year's racing as pilot.
He said: "I have represented the college team for the past two seasons in the Scottish Motor Trade Association Scottish C1 Cup. 
"I relish the challenge to make the transition into single seaters for the 2021 season.

Largs and Millport Weekly News:
“I have always been very passionate about single seater racing in Scotland as it is a great breeding ground for motorsport talent in our country. 
"I am delighted to be involved in this joint venture between the Scottish Motor Racing Club, West College Scotland and the Scottish Motor Trade Association. 
"I hope this inspires other colleges to get involved with Scottish Formula Ford in the future. 
"Personally I cannot wait to get back on track in a single seater this season. 
"My previous outing was a great introduction to racing in Formula Ford, however this season will give me a real taste of what it is like to compete in this exciting championship over the course of a full season. 

"This year my WCS Motorsport Academy Team will be taking part in three Championships - Kenny Dock in the Scottish C1 Cup, James McCracken Racing in the Scottish MINI Cooper Cup and myself in Scottish Formula Ford.
"I am absolutely delighted to be involved with something that will hopefully inspire other colleges to get involved."
West College Scotland Motorsport Academy, which has been set up to run all the college’s motorsport activity, will build on their success running in the Scottish Motor Trade Association Scottish C1 Cup for the past two seasons, as their student team embarks on the new challenge in the 2021 Scottish Formula Ford Championship. 
The students who begin learning their trade in the C1 Cup, will have the opportunity to progress to work on the more technical Formula Ford, which offers more scope for set-up changes as West College Scotland Curriculum and Quality Leader in the Automotive section.
