The 40th Galloway Hills Rally takes place this weekend and almost 80 crews have entered the Castle Douglas based event.
Organisers wanted to do something a a bit different to mark the anniversary, so they decided to build a "super special" stage.
The 1.5 mile stage has been built at Auchenlosh Quarry near Dalbeattie, and features jumps, a bridge and a water splash.
Event organiser Barbara Armstrong says it will give spectators a good view of the action.
"The spectator area sits up high so everyone can see the cars going round the 1.5 mile circuit. We have toilet facilities, car parking and catering so its a great chance to get the whole family involved and let's people get close to the action whilst still being safe."
The rally has also been included in the Scottish Rally Championship for the first time ever, and makes up the final round.
Dumfries driver David Bogie won the championship on the last round, but there are still many class battles to be decided.
