Scott Robert Pye (born 8 January 1990 at Adelaide, South Australia) is an Australian racing driver. He won the 2010 British Formula Ford Championship. He is currently competing in the V8 Supercars Championship, driving for DJR Team Penske.
Pye started out in go-karts like many other drivers have done before him. Pye moved up to the Formula Ford level in 2007 when he raced in the State Series Formula Ford in Australia for Borland Racing Developments/ Cams Rising Star.
2008 saw Pye move up to the Australian Formula Ford Championship again with Borland Racing Developments/ Cams Rising Star. He finished the championship in seventh place in 2008  and in third position in 2009.
Pye joined fellow Australian driver Nathan Antunes in the European Technique team for the 2008–09 Toyota Racing Series in New Zealand. He enjoyed instant success in the series with a podium finish in his first race at Ruapuna. Pye completed the weekend with a win in the third race which saw him take home the Wigram Cup. Pye continued his good form in round two at Levels Raceway when he won the final two races, earning him the round win.
For 2010 Pye moved to the UK to compete in the British Formula Ford Championship. Racing a Mygale for British team Jamun Racing he won the championship with 12 race wins and 17 pole positions. He also finished second in the Formula Ford Festival in 2010.
Scott Pye has confirmed he will step up to British Formula 3 Championship for 2011 with Double R. Pye's Mercedes-engined CampingF1 sponsored Dallara lapped the 2.7-mile Oulton Park International Circuit in 1m 27.621s, more than a second inside the 2010 pole position time set by eventual champion Jean-Éric Vergne. After a season full of promise, he finished tenth in the championship with one win at Rockingham and a second place at the season ending Silverstone weekend.
In February 2012, Scott made the switch to touring cars, becoming the new driver of Triple Eight Race Engineering’s championship-winning Monster Energy/GearWrench backed Holden Commodore in the 2012 V8 Supercar Development Series
After a difficult rookie season including two major incidents - one of which resulted in missing the following event  - Scott joined Ford team Dick Johnson Racing driving a Ford FG Falcon with Wilson Security sponsorship.
