Rally - Over the Gravel to Skye

Dougal Brown won Saturday's Skye Gravel Sprint with a best time of 1m 45.0s in his Mitsubishi Lancer EVO4 from the EVO6 of David Ross (1m 48.6s) and the Subaru Impreza of Kevin Ronaldson (1m 50.1s). 

Malcolm Buchanan was top 2WD in his Escort MkII in fourth place (1m 52.8s) with David McLean fifth in his Impreza (1m 53.0s) and Reay MacKay was sixth after one lone run in his Metro 6R4 with a time of 1m 54.5s.

This was the Skye Rally Club's second Rally Sprint following last year's inaugural event and 29 cars lined up for the start of six runs with only the best time to count. 

It gave Dougal Brown his first ever event win: "I thought Reay (MacKay) would be the biggest threat, but when the Metro broke its exhaust after the first run, I just wanted to keep it tidy and not damage the car - I'm doing the Merrick next week!"
