CHAMPION: Jason Scott, middle, celebrates with supporters after winning last night's South Island Sprintcar Championships at the Riverside Speedway, near Invercargill.

Jason Scott won the South Island Sprintcar Championships for the fourth time at the Riverside Speedway last night.

``I'm bloody rapt,'' Scott, of Queenstown, said after winning the prestigious event.

A slight concern for Scott was the condition of his tyres near the end of the final race.

``The last five or six laps, the tyres were wearing out, but we got there.''

Scott, who has been driving competitively for six years, is a builder.

He and fellow sprintcar drivers will be back at Riverside Speedway tonight for the War of the Wings.
