The Scottish Rally Championship is back!
The 2020 KNC Groundworks Scottish Rally Championship (SRC) season is poised for an explosive start as a new decade of SRC action kicks off with the Coogie Urquhart Snowman Rally in Inverness this Saturday (7 March).
The Snowman is the traditional start to the SRC season and is celebrating its 65th anniversary in 2020, boasting rallying legends such as Roger Clark and Pentti Airikkala on its roll of honour.
Double SRC champion Jock Armstrong and co-driver Cameron Fair headline this year’s entry in their Subaru Impreza and are favourites to win their first SRC event in over a year. That result would move Armstrong level with David Bogie and Donald Heggie at the top of the Snowman’s winners list.
However, such a feat will be hardly fought because as ever, the competition at the throughout the SRC is set to be incredibly fierce this year.
Winners in 2016, Donnie Macdonald and Andrew Falconer, line up as the second seed in their Ford Fiesta R5 in a great position to challenge for overall honours. Macdonald has always gone well on his local event and is determined to get his season off to the best possible start.
Freddie Milne and Patrick Walsh will be a force to be reckoned with in their Subaru Impreza WRC as will John Wink and Neil Shanks in a Hyundai i20 R5. Both crews bagged crucial pre-season miles on the Fivemiletown Stages in Northern Ireland recently so will be match fit and ready to fight for the top spot in Inverness this Saturday.
The rally starts at Fariways Leisure in Inverness at 9am before returning there just before 4pm. All the information you need is available on the Snowman Rally’s website, including spectator information and the full entry list.
