The Colin McRae Forest Stages Rally will see two olympic champions give the course a go this weekend instead of their more traditional sporting activities.

Sir Chris Hoy MBE and Amy Williams MBE will be taking part in the rally which takes place in Aberfeldy, Scotland.

Although Sir Chris Hoy will not be directly competing, he will be facing all stages in the course car alongside five-time British Rally Champion, Jimmy McRae.
