A woman died and a young boy was injured when a car collided with spectators during a rally.
Joy Robson, 50, from the Isle of Skye, was killed in the incident at the Highland Car Club Snowman Rally yesterday.
Detectives have named a 50-year-old woman who was killed when a race car careered off a forest track and slammed into spectators of the Scottish Rally Championship.
Police can now confirm that the 50 year old female who sustained fatal injuries whilst in attendance at the Snowman Rally earlier on today, has been named as Joy Robson from the Isle of Skye. Family have requested that the media respect their privacy at this difficult time.
Inspector Neil Lumsden, head of road policing at Northern Constabulary, said: "As a result of the collision, a participating car has left the forestry track it was travelling on and collided with a group of spectators."
Officers from the Northern Constabulary said police from the force's Road Policing Unit will carry out a full road collision investigation.
Following an earlier collision between a rally car and spectators during Stage 1 of the Highland Car Club Snowman Rally Police can confirm that a 50-year-old woman has sustained fatal injuries and an eight year old boy has been taken to Raigmore Hospital for treatment.
The boy's condition is not believed to be life threatening. Neither the driver or the co-driver of the vehicle was injured as a result of the incident. No other spectators were injured. The details of the deceased will not be issued until all next of kin have been informed.
