Armstrong Galloway Hills Rally launches new-look 2019 event

THE Armstrong Galloway Hills Rally has launched the 46th edition of the popular South-West of Scotland event with further details on the British Rally Championship and KNC Groundworks Scottish Rally Championship qualifier which will take place on Saturday, September 14.

Sponsored for the 20th year by The Armstrong Group, the event will for the first time since 1999 move away from its traditional rally base of Castle Douglas to the iconic town of Dalbeattie, a name synonymous with the sport across the decades.

The move just a couple of miles down the Urr Valley to Dalbeattie will see all pre-event checks, Rally Headquarters and ceremonial start being based at Jas P Wilson’s newly extended campus, ensuring a compact format to the weekend’s proceedings. The shift also opens the classic Dalbeattie stage to the event, which will be tackled by crews for the first time in five years.

Organised as a collaboration between Solway, Machars and East Ayrshire Car Clubs the now traditional final round of the Scottish Rally Championship has, for the first time, been joined by the prestigious British Rally Championship which has led to a brand-new format for the event in 2019.
