Rally - Galloping Hills

Jock Armstrong and Kirsty Riddick head the line-up for this Sunday’s Armstrong Galloway Hills Rally in Castle Douglas, but they will be in unfamiliar tinwork. With the Subaru not back from the body doctor’s as yet, Jock has borrowed a Steve Petch Mitsubishi Lancer EVO9 – in left hand drive trim. And making sure he behaves himself, guess who’s running at Number 2? Stephen Petch Jnr. I reckon the get-togethers in the service park will be interesting once ‘the boy’ sees Jock’s lines through the woods!

The improving Chris Collie runs at number three in his Subaru while the top seeded visitor from ‘across the water’ is Pat O’Connell in an EVO9, but there will be fireworks behind this lot with Mark McCulloch and Richard Dickson having a bit of a local needle match in their respective Subarus. The pair finished less than 2 minutes apart on the other local event this year, the Solway Stages, but Richard had a puncture.

Jointly organised by Solway, Machars and East Ayrshire car clubs, the rally will start from the Market Hill in Castle Douglas at 08:31, before heading to the first of five stages

SS1, Thistle Inn Crossmichael Glengap, at 09:02.
