Now that the Jim Clark is over, the Roger Albert Clark is rapidly approaching. The main event has around 140 entries, from 2-stroke SAABs to 205s and a Nova (Novas are historic? we must be getting old), Lotus Cortina to Subaru Legacy, fleets of Mark 1 and 2 Escorts, Avengers and Sunbeams. There is also a one-day Clubman rally using the Scottish stages on the Sunday, with another 17 entries. Lots of proper rally cars, in fact - view the Seeded Entry List .

This year the marshals' gifts are Roger Albert Clark embroidered fleeces, in a choice of styles.
