RSAC Scottish Rally

The 72nd running of the RSAC Scottish Rally sees a host of rally stars heading to Dumfries and Galloway this weekend.  Racing gets underway at Castle O’er and spectating is free.

The annual event, supported by Dumfries & Galloway Council will once again play host to the Prestone MSA British Rally Championship (BRC) and ARR Craib MSA Scottish Rally Championship (SRC) with both series’ providing an enviable list of crews from across the world all eager to tackle classic stages in the Eskdalemuir and Ae forests.

On Saturday, runners from the Scottish Rally Championship will join the fray and the full field blast through the first spectator stage, Castle O’er at 9.10am.  They return for a second pass at 1.30pm.  The forest of Ae also offers the chance to see a double run, firstly at 11.30am and then again at 4.15pm although the second running will be just for the BRC crews.  The town of Moffat will play host to the ceremonial finish at around 5pm where the lucky winners will spray the champagne.

Spectating is free in the designated spectator viewing areas, see the Scottish Rally website for more information.
