Special Stage 2 (Riccarton) - Cancelled
Just after 10.00 this morning a number of quad bikers arrived at Post 7, Stage 2, Riccarton. The bikers were initially stopped by the marshals at this location at which point they became abusive towards the marshals and stated they had, "No regard for the rally."
The bikers proceeded off into the forest and the marshals lost sight of them. Due to the lack of knowledge of their whereabouts and intentions, the stage was suspended and subsequently cancelled.
The Border Counties Rally takes the safety of all as its first priority and as such had no alternative but to take this decision.
