IRC season-ender to provide ''a real spectacle''
The Rally of Scotland will include stages not used for more than 20 years when it brings the curtain down on this year's Intercontinental Rally Challenge.
Due to take place from November 19-21, the event will be made
up of a competitive distance of 224.88 kilometres split over 13 special stages, of which some will run at night in the challenging Scottish forests.
Jimmy McRae, a five-time winner of the British Rally Championship and the father of the late Colin McRae, was full of praise of the route following an inspection.
"It's great to see these stages used for rallying again," said Scottish legend McRae during the recent official launch of the rally on the grounds of Stirling Castle.
"They provide a real spectacle for spectators and they are immensely enjoyable for the drivers," he added.
The event will start in the Scottish city of Perth on the evening of Thursday November 19, with the event scheduled to finish in Stirling on the afternoon of Saturday November 21.
