Scott Pye begins a fresh chapter in 2020 as an integral part of Team’s 18 expansion to two cars.

Three years at Walkinshaw Andretti United took Pye to new heights, particularly a 2018 campaign in which he took his maiden race win at Albert Park and secured a career-best seventh in the championship.

Pye also twice made it to the Bathurst podium and finished his time with the Holden squad on a high last year with seven consecutive top seven results excluding the Sandown sprint.

Having matched up well against 2010 champion James Courtney at WAU, the South Australian product now partners with another former series winner in Mark Winterbottom.

Team boss Charlie Schwerkolt has described Pye as a future champion; how he stacks up against Winterbottom this year will be telling.

With veteran co-driver Dean Fiore by his side for the PIRTEK Enduro Cup, the pieces are in place for Pye to make his mark on the year ahead.

It has been a somewhat disjointed road to this point.

After returning from Europe where he had won the 2010 British Formula Ford Championship and taken a race win in British Formula 3 the following year, he lined up for Triple Eight in a blockbuster 2012 Dunlop Super2 Series field.

Runner-up to Scott McLaughlin and recipient of the Mike Kable Young Gun Award was enough to secure an immediate promotion with minnows Lucas Dumbrell Motorsport.

A surprise sixth at Bathurst paved the way for a move to Dick Johnson Racing for 2014, and he would ultimately stay there for three years.

Pye in fact took both the first podium (Pukekohe 2015) and first ARMOR ALL Pole Position (Adelaide 2016) for the Penske organisation following its buy-in to DJR.

Outside of his efforts behind the wheel, Pye runs video production company One Nine Media.
