From the result of the convergence of Scottish Supercars and The Cognoscenti, two of the focal points of prestige car life in Scotland.
Scottish Supercars was founded in January 2013 by Pete Watt and Craig Handley as a community to promote Scotland and the high calibre of automotive happenings within our country. Throughout 2013, driven by our automotive obsessions, we built the brand through our Facebook platform, covering events and bringing our fans and friends the most exciting news from around Scotland. We work with well-known dealerships, museums and brands regularly.
In March 2014 we held our first ever ‘BHP Breakfast’ – a ‘Cars and Coffee’-style morning meet. Since then we have held these events regularly, accompanied by some guests such as Aston Martin Edinburgh, Lamborghini Edinburgh, McLaren Glasgow, and Mercedes-Benz of Edinburgh. We have simplified the name to ‘GT Scotland : Breakfast’ which we announce to our mailing list, through our Facebook page and on this website.
In April 2014, discussions began with The Cognoscenti, the goal? To create a strong platform from which to enjoy our passion, to continue to bring more of the most interesting news to our fans, and to carry on the strengthening of our community of owners and enthusiasts.
In June 2014, GT Scotland Ltd was born.
In October 2014, Sofiane Kennouche joined the GT Scotland team as our sole Features Writer. His role is to add colour and depth through his writings. As a freelance motoring journalist, Sofiane contributes to evo Magazine, GT Scotland and The Press and Journal’s Motoring supplement. He also runs his own motoring blog, Motormessenger.
