The spectacular high speed route for this year’s RACMSA Rally of Scotland – the UK’s only round of the high profile Intercontinental Rally Challenge – has been announced with several exciting changes in place for 2011’s event.
Some of the world’s leading rally drivers and teams representing top makes such as Ford, Skoda, Proton, Peugeot and Subaru will be in action on the event that this year takes place on the weekend of 7-9 October on the undulating gravel tracks in the vast forests of Stirlingshire and Perthshire.
Again, the rolling countryside of both counties will provide a stunning backdrop for Rally of Scotland and will also show off the country in all its splendour before a potential global TV audience of millions watching leading international sport broadcaster Eurosport’s coverage of the event.
In addition, the fabulous setting plus the prestige of such a high level international rally will draw tens of thousands of motor sport fans from across Scotland and the UK. With invaluable support from volunteers, officials and marshals from the country’s motor sporting fraternity as well as expert organisational input from EventScotland, Stirlingshire and Perth & Kinross councils and Forestry Commission Scotland, it all adds up to a sporting event which carries great national pride.
During its three days (7-9 October), crews competing in this year’s Rally of Scotland will cover in excess of 1000km. More than 200 of those will be on the daunting special stages that will decide who is crowned the winner of this year’s event.
