Merrick Stages

Entries have now opened for the GWF Energy Merrick Stages Rally, which will take place in Dumfries and Galloway on Saturday, September 6th.

The event is a round of the ARR Craib MSA Scottish Rally Championship, and is also a counter in both divisions of the Ecosse Challenge, and the Five of Clubs Rally Championship.

For the fifth successive year, the start and finish, as well as Friday night scrutineering, will be located in front of Rally HQ at the former county buildings in Wigtown.

The rally route – one of the most compact in the Scottish Championship calendar – will comprise seven classic stages in the Galloway Forest Park, totalling some 44 miles. There will be 115 road miles, and two visits to the central service area at Glencaird.

New for 2014, the Merrick is open to competitors in Rally First. Historic rally cars will again run ahead of the main field, and a reduced entry fee is being offered to overseas competitors.

In addition, there will be a Trophy Rally over the final three stages for crews unfortunate enough to retire earlier in the day.

Said Clerk of the Course, Graham Bisset: “With a competitive entry fee of £500.00, including one service pack and one management service pack, we hope that the prospect of great stage conditions will encourage more entries to the Merrick Stages, which twice in recent years has had the distinction of winning the Chairman’s Cup for the best event in the Scottish Rally Championship”.

He went on: “We're delighted to have the continuing sponsorship of GWF Energy, and the invaluable support of Dumfries and Galloway Council, whose funding for the rally is provided as part of the regional Major Festivals and Events Strategy. We can guarantee competitors and all those involved in the event the warmest of welcomes in Wigtown on September 6th”.
