Scott Dollahite grew up in the racing world, working with his father’s Can-AM and Ferrari 333SP, LMP team. He started his own driving career at age 4 racing karts where he won his debut race.
Scott has always been a “hands-on” driver, building and tuning his race cars since that early beginning and constantly taking advantage of the race engineer’s and pro drivers knowledge that he grew up around.
He was home schooled in his early teen years and raced on the SKUSA and IKF karting tours where he won in Junior Shifter and in Pro Stock Moto. His driver fitness regime included martial arts where he earned a Black Belt in Kuk Sool Won and won the World Martial Arts Championship at the age of 12.
He attended High School in Austin, Texas where he was an athletic scholar. He was a multi-sport star in baseball, wrestling, track and football. As a Texas 5A High School football running back he was seriously injured in a pre-season game in his junior year. This is where he first met, Neuro Surgeon, Dr. Tim George at Dell Children’s Center. Fortunately, Dollahite made a full recovery and was able to return to the sports and life he loved so much.
He attended Kansas State University where is studied Mechanical Engineering on an academic scholarship. Recognizing the short window of opportunity, he returned to Austin to pursue his driving career full time and work at the track and motorsports academy his father built. He has won in SCCA, SCCA PRO and NASA Pro competition since returning. He has won his debut races in 3 or 5 classes he has entered and gone on to win in all 5. He is currently the chief driving instructor at the academy and has been recognized as one of the top tactical driver trainers in the country. His first racing student was the very doctor that gave him his life back from that serious spinal injury back in high school.
Scott has competed in the Grand Am Rolex series for two seasons (2012, 2013) in the GT class and was named as the driver for the Lotus Evora GX entry in 2013 at Mazda Raceway where he achieved a podium for Lotus in the Evora’s debut race. Then backed it up at Lime Rock Park two weeks later with a front row start. The Evora was taken out by another racing incident… while comfortably leading.
Scott now competes in the Pirelli World Challenge still for Lotus in the Evora GTS #46. In the debut event at Circuit of the Americas, he qualified the Evora on the pole for the season opener.
