TEENAGE harness racing driver Gregor Paterson is heading off to Canada next month.
Gregor (20), who races regularly at Corbiewood Stadium at Bannockburn, has been invited to Ontario to compete in the Coville Cup, a harness racing series for young drivers.
He faced tough competition from across the UK but his application came out on top, with Emma Langford from Wales as runner-up.
Gregor said: “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me to drive out there.
“I’m so thankful to everyone that has helped to make this happen and I will try my best to make the UK proud.”
The Coville Cup will be held in Ottawa on August 5 as part of the annual Night of Champions.
