Swiftair sponsors Ecurie Ecosse

Swiftair, the Royal Mail’s express letter delivery service to all parts of the world, is to sponsor the Ecurie Ecosse team’s challenge in the C2 division of the World Sportscar Championship this season.

Thirty years after the Scottish team’s great 1-2 victory at Le Mans with its Jaguar D-types, Ecurie Ecosse will be fielding its own car powered by a Cosworth DFL V8 engine.

Driving will be shared by Britons Ray Mallock, Nick Adams and David Leslie, and Belgium’s Marc Duez.
