Coltel Granite City Rally
This was round two of the 2013 ARR Craib Scottish Rally Championship.
At one were David Bogie and Kevin Rae in the newly sorted Cagemax sponsored Focus and yet again they put in a measured performance, controlling the rally from the front as they have done so many times in the past to win one of David’s favourite events by the huge margin of 1 minute 24 seconds. Ian Paterson and Jim Haugh were at 32 in the Gulf Impreza, finally getting to do a full rally in the Gulf Impreza, recording 30th overall.
Many thanks yet again to Frank Love for these excellent images.
Mike Curry was again navigating the BMW 316i driven by Robert Harkness of Stewarton and they took 27th overall. James Robertson and Colin Maxwell were at 55 in the Penpont Garage C2R2 and took 55th overall, making the seeding commitee look rather clever!. Unfortunately, Chuck Blair and Mark Roberts retired on stage 3 with mechanical problems in their 205GTi. Scott Sloan and dad David (not Ian as the Standard claimed) in their Corsa, started at 99 and finished 73rd.
Hopefully more information from all of the above yet to come???
Meantime, well done to all the finishers and commiserations to Chuck & Mark.
