JUST a week remains until the RSAC Scottish Rally returns to Dumfries.

The fast-paced contest, which will be staged next Friday and Saturday, is a round of the ARR Craib MSA Scottish Rally Championship, the Motoscope Northern Historic Rally Championship, the Ecosse Challenge, the Five of Clubs Championship and the Border Challenge Championship.
And this year, for the first time, there will also be dedicated spectator zones in Ae West, Heathhall, Castle O’er and Rivox allowing members of the public safe viewing.
Assistant clerk of the course Craig Webster said: “Preparations for the events are well in hand and we are looking forward to an exciting rally.
“We would especially encourage spectators to use the specially created spectator zones in Ae Forest, Heathhall, Castle O’er and at Rivox.
“These have been chosen to provide safe viewing of our most popular stages and we are grateful for the help of the Forestry Commission in creating these areas and details of them can be found on the event website and in the spectator programme.”
