Dumfries rally driver David Bogie has re-written the history books by winning an unprecedented fifth Scottish Championship.
The 26-year-old, co driven by Kevin Rae from Hawick, won the Colin McRae Stages rally in Perth on Saturday.
Going into the penultimate round of the championship, the Colin McRae stages rally, both David and Duns driver Euan Thorburn had a chance of taking overall honours.
Both drivers set the exact same time on the first stage. Bogie picked up a puncture on the second stage, giving Thorburn a 21 second lead.
On the following two stages, Bogie pulled back a few seconds. On the second last stage he took a further eight seconds off of Thorburn, meaning that only eight seconds separated the drivers going in to the last stage.
Going into the last stage Bogie said:
"This is it, it's all or nothing now. We have to give it everything and then some."
Both drivers were pushed to their limits during the last stage, and Euan picked up a puncture.
David quickly took the lead and he finished the stage 26 seconds quicker than Euan- sealing his place in history.
At the finish line, Bogie said:
"This is unbelievable. To win a fifth Scottish title is unreal. Growing up it was a dream of mine to be Scottish champion one day.
"I picked up a puncture on stage 2 and Euan picked one up on the last stage. That's what happens when you are being pushed to your limits.
"This is my first year in the new car, and to win the championship on only my eighth rally in the car is pretty special. I'm on cloud nine. "
