It’s now less than two months to go until the inaugural RACMSA Rally of Scotland (19 -21 November). Excitement is growing about the three day event, which will see drivers from all over Europe travel to Scotland for the final round of the prestigious Intercontinental Rally Challenge (IRC).
The rally, which covers Stirling and Perth and Kinross, marks the first time in over twenty years that Scotland has hosted a motorsport event of such calibre. The event will bring not only top-class drivers and teams, but also dedicated motorsport fans and media, all eager to experience the thirteen enthralling stages, showcasing some of Scotland’s most breathtaking scenery and challenging terrain.
In a quirky twist, organisers are encouraging fans to support their favourite drivers by placing a wish on the famous tree at the summit of Fairy Knowe, which is hosting stages nine and twelve of the rally on Saturday, 21 November. Contributing to the sense of tradition and ancestry of the event, Fairy Knowe in Aberfoyle, or Doon Hill as it is also known, has long been known as a site of legend and myth. The tradition goes that if you write your wish on a piece of cloth or silk and tie it around the branches of the majestic Scottish Pine at the summit, the fairies of the forest will make it come true.
