Solway Coast Rally

Organisers of next month's Usedcarparts.co.uk Solway Coast Rally say "entries have blitzed" since they opened last Friday.

The two-day event, held at the military ranges at Dundrennan, near Kirkcudbright, is again proving a draw for many of the country's top competitors, as well as the cream of up-and-coming young drivers – aged 14 to 17 - who will contest the junior rally.

The senior rally, to be held on Saturday August 9th, will count as a qualifying round of the Five of Clubs Rally Championship, Scottish Tarmack Rally Championship, North of England Tarmacadam Championship and the Border Championship.

Last year, Mark McCulloch from Newton Stewart powered his Subaru Impreza to victory, with Ian Paterson, also in a Subaru, finishing as runner-up for the second year running.

The junior event, which will run on the Sunday, is a counter in the highly-acclaimed Brick & Steel Junior 1000 Ecosse Challenge, McGrady Insurance Junior 1000 Rally Challenge Ireland, Kick Energy Junior 1000 Rally Championship and the Kick Energy Formula 1000 Stage Rally Challenge.

One of those competing will be 17-year-old Sam Bilham, a member of the MSA training academy, and the 2014 winner of the Next Big Step scheme, which provides financial support to help a talented youngster progress in the sport.

"This is a historic year for the Solway Coast, as it'll be the first time that all the junior championships fight it out over the same stages, and that should create a real buzz", said Clerk of the Course Sanny Dobie: "The feedback from the juniors last year was excellent, and they all agreed this was their favourite rally.

He went on: "We're also indebted to Richard Stewart and family of Usedcarparts.co.uk for their continuing support. In particular, Richard has been delighted with the growth and success of the junior event, which now attracts the the best young talent from throughout the UK and Ireland.

“The stages are the best to date. Donald Peacock and his team have laid in the region of 100 tonnes of new surface so far with a further 40 or so still to go down.”
