RSAC Scottish Rally returns to Dumfries

Around 200 crews are arriving in Dumfries today for this weekend's RSAC Scottish Rally.

The annual event, now in its 81st year, acts as the mid-way point of the Scottish Rally Championship (SRC).

It also welcomes the return of the British Rally Championship (BRC) following a seven year break.

The rally kicks off with a ceremonial start from Dumfries High Street this evening, before they tackle the first lot of stages tomorrow morning.

Dumfries driver David Bogie is the top seed for his home event and will be hoping for a repeat of last year, where he took overall honours.

However, he will face tough competition from Euan Thorburn, Jock Armstrong,and Mike Faulkner.

“This year we have changed the route and taken the stages to the west of Dumfries in the Clatteringshaws area.

"These are stages we haven’t used for about eight years so it will be a welcome change for drivers and spectators.”

“Comparing the performance of the top Scottish and top British drivers will be an interesting exercise on the day.”
