The McRae Rally Challenge will feature two one-day single venue rallies, a Junior rally event, and will also see the newly named "McRae's Corner" in use for the very first time. An eagerly awaited feature will be the “Battle of the McRae’s” as three generations of the McRae family compete head-to-head to determine who is the fastest!

The McRae Rally Challenge is being held at Knockhill circuit on Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd July.

If you can help as a radio operator, please click here to register.

This event will be allocated on a first come, first served basis if the maximum number of radio crews is exceeded. If lots of crews volunteer, we will split across the two days so everyone gets at least one day each.

Please contact Leanne Ritchie, Communications Officer with any queries: leannerally50@hotmail.com / 07751661537

World Champions will be present, and competing too, and the first star name on the entry list is non other than Sir Chris Hoy, the six time gold medalist, who will be making his rally debut. Returning is the legend Stig Blomqvist rallying in a Vauxhall Firenza and a host of World Champion navigators. There is also the chance to win a passenger ride in an Audi Quattro Sport driven by Stig!

Another star in attendance is none other than Red Bull backed WRC star Elfyn Evans, the Toyota works driver who will be making a guest appearance (Sunday 3rd only), who will be driving a selection of classic Toyota's and no doubt cheering on his father Gwyndaf who is competing in his own Mk2 Escort. In addition, World Ladies Rally Champions Louise Aitken-Walker and co-driver Tina Thorner will be taking part in the parade of champions in a car she previously competed in.
