Border Counties Rally 2015

(No passport required . . .)

There are big changes in store for the 2015 Border Counties Rally.

Initial plans are for the  event to run entirely north of the Border, with a return to some stages not used competitively by rally cars for many years. Along with a new service park, this route will provide a different challenge for the competitors and organising team alike!

The rally will still be based in Jedburgh, with Rally HQ in the Town Hall, and once again spectators will be able to get close to the cars with scrutineering and the ceremonial start also in Abbey Place.

The other significant change is that after 13 years of dedicated support, John McClory and Brick & Steel Construction are standing down as title sponsor. The organising team from Hawick and Border Car Club and Whickham and District Motor Club are very grateful to John and Brick & Steel, for their valuable input throughout this time. They will continue to be involved in the event as an associate partner, and we hope to see John out on the stages again next year.

Put the date in your diary now, Saturday 21st March, we hope to see you there.

You’re going to need Map 73

The Border Counties Rally will see a significant change of direction this year by becoming the first since it's resurrection in 1997 to have the whole route north of the border. Only 7 miles of the roads were used last year, 3 stages are unused by any event since 1999 and have only seen one rally car in the period since. The majority of current drivers will not have been in these forests! Some older navigators however may have...

We also have a new hard standing central service area with cafe and toilets on site, this will be visited twice during the day.

As well as being round 2 of the ARR Craib MSA Scottish Rally Championship and the opening round of the Ecosse Challenge, we also welcome competitors from the HRCR Motoscope Northern Historic Rally Championship, the ANECCC SG Petch Stage Rally Championship, the Border Challenge and for the first time, the Five of Clubs Championship.

The event remains based in Jedburgh with scrutineering, start and pipe band finish ceremony outside Rally HQ in the Town Hall.

We look forward to extending you a very warm Borders welcome to a new challenge on classic roads.
