Dumfries rally driver David Bogie is preparing for the new season.
The five times Scottish champion has been testing his Ford Focus World Rally Car before the first event of the year.
The 26-year-old broke all records last year when he won a fifth consecutive Scottish title, which has never been done before.
"This season we're going to start with the Wyedean stages which is the first round of the BTRDA Championship, it's an event i've not done since 2006, then we're going to move onto the snowman rally, based in Inverness, which is the first round of the Scottish championship."
