Our first 12 Car Rally of the Autumn, with 7 Entries (3 Expert and 4 Semi-Expert). The Captain adapted to LHD in the mighty Rover with ease (“it’s OK, my road sweeper is left hand drive…”) and he & Keith Riddick finished on just 1 penalty. Richard Dickson & Roger Alcorn were next 3 penalties, with John & Mark McCulloch on 70 penalties.

In the Semi-Experts, first pair were Nancy Dickson & Greg Alcorn on 28 penalties, ahead of Rebekah Russell & Mairi Riddick on 72 penalties. Rab Henderson & Peter Game were just one minute behind on 73 penalties, with first-timers Liam Harkness &Harry Marchbank on 246 penalties.

Thank you to Albert Connelly for organising another challenging event, the Gowans Family for the start venue, and everyone who came out on the night to marshal.
