Rally of Scotland resurrects legendary stages

Rally of Scotland

The inaugural Royal Automobile Club Motor Sports Association (RAC MSA) Rally of Scotland, from 19-21 November, will utilise some of the world’s most legendary rally stages.  This final round of the 2009 Intercontinental Rally Challenge (IRC) gives fans, families and sports lovers alike the chance to soak up some iconic motorsport stages, all set amidst a selection of Scotland’s stunning historic locations.

Errochty is the first stage of the event that will stir up feelings of nostalgia with aficionados, while allowing those new to rallying the chance to experience a piece of the sport’s history and watch some of today’s top drivers, including Kris Meeke and Guy Wilks.

The rally then visits Drummond Hill, a stage of the Colin McRae Forest Stages Rally that’s very popular with some of motorsport’s most influential figures, including boss of the BP Ford Abu Dhabi Team, Malcolm Wilson who has made no secret of the fact that it is his favourite stage in the world. This steep test is not for the faint-hearted.

Day two sees many stages utilised that have not been used competitively for almost two decades. Stages nine and twelve, Fairy Knowe, have caused plenty of drama in the past, having been the setting of exploits from some of rallying’s most iconic figures, including McRaes Jimmy and Colin.
