Scott Pye tackles 2016 as a full-time driver with expanding team DJR Team Penske after stepping in to replace Marcos Ambrose for the majority of 2015.

Pye was 2012’s Mike Kable Young Gun Award winner for the best first-year driver in V8 Supercars (when he contested the Dunlop Series), clinching a breakthrough round win in the final event at Sydney Olympic Park and finishing runner-up to Scott McLaughlin in the overall points score.

Pye came up through the ranks of karting and Formula Ford, finishing third in the 2009 Australian Formula Ford Championship behind Nick Percat and Mitch Evans before heading overseas to race.

He claimed the 2010 British Formula Ford Championship with 14 race wins and stepped up to the cut-throat British Formula 3 Championship a year later.

He finished 10th overall in the points with a race win at Rockingham the major highlight, joining the likes of Mark Webber and Will Davison as Australian drivers to score a race win in the category that produced drivers the ilk of Ayrton Senna, Mika Hakkinen and David Coulthard.

The backing of Roland Dane and Triple Eight Race Engineering helped Pye with his overseas racing program and he returned in 2012 to Australia to drive the Monster Commodore in the Dunlop Series for the team.

A superb rookie season saw Scott finish second overall picking up two race wins and a host of podiums. Pye also made his V8 Supercars Championship debut in Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport’s Triple Eight-built Commodore at Sandown teaming with Taz Douglas.

A full season with LDM in 2013 did not bring the results Pye was hoping for and a number of unlucky big accidents did not help his title aspirations.

A fine recovery at Bathurst with a superb sixth place, teamed with Paul Morris, showed just what potential Pye had and shook off some of the disappointments from earlier in the year.

In 2014, Scott moved to the re-energised Dick Johnson Racing, and in 2015 took over from Ambrose as the driver of the #17 DJR Team Penske Ford Falcon.
