About.

Dave Acton has been interested in cars since he was a child, coyly admitting he used to run about school using his workbooks as a steering wheel!  His first experience of car racing was at the age of 14, driving mini stocks at Crimond raceway.  This enthusiasm has continued and in 2010, Dave bought a Subaru Impreza and used it for Trackdays, before purchasing another Subaru Impreza in 2012 and preparing it for track racing. With advancements to the car and driving time under his belt, Dave started competing in the 2015 SLS. The first round was on the 19th April – hence his driver number #19. Throughout the season, Dave progressively improved his times from 70secs to just under 60secs per lap by the season finale. With buoyant enthusiasm and a strong determination to get back on the track and improve his racing performance, Dave is now putting all his efforts into preparing for 2017 competitions.  Work has already started on his car, with re-painting, engine rebuild and gearbox decisions ongoing. Dave intends to challenge in both the Scottish Motor Racing Club (SMRC) and Super Lap Scotland (SLS) competitions in 2017.
