He made his debut in 2003 and drove a Subaru Impreza in Italian events for two seasons. He switched to a Fiat Abarth Grande Punto, which he campaigned for four years in the Intercontinental Rally Challenge and Italian Championship.

Scandola switched to a Ford Fiesta S2000 and then a Skoda Fabia S2000, in which he finished runner-up in the Italian series in 2012. He lifted the title the following season after netting three victories.

For the next three years Scandola finished third in his home championship, having progressed to a Fabia R5, before finishing second again in 2017.
