Our final 12 Car Rally of the year, with 6 Entries (3 Expert and 3 Semi-Expert). Another event with some challenging clues but long sections ended in a tie at the front, with Mark McCulloch & Kirsty Riddick and  Scott Peacock & Keith Riddick with a clean sheet, and Richard Dickson & Roger Alcorn just behind on 1 penalty.

In the Semi-Experts, it was a win for Rebekah Russell & Mairi Riddick on 27 penalties. Rab Henderson & Peter Game were next with 90 penalties, followed by Liam Harkness & Harry Marchbank on 123 penalties.

Quote of the night to The Captain, once they’d removed the roof of the Mazda MX5: “I’d just turned onto the A713, and a clue hit me in the face.”

Thank you to Uncle Bob Green for organising, the Gowans Family for the start venue, and everyone who came out on the night to marshal. Extra thanks to Ruth (and Donald & Bella) for our festive chocolates!

The next event will be in 2023.

We will hold some classroom-based training in advance of this, so keep an eye on the website for details, as new members are always welcome to come along and give a 12 Car a try: it’s fun… most of the time! 😊
