Rally - Reivers underway

Michael Moore MP, the Secretary of State for Scotland flagged off the first cars at the start of the Jim Clark Reivers Rally in Duns this morning. And what a morning. Despite the weather predictions it is dry and sunny over the Borders - for now.

Barry Groundwater pulled out of the main event yesterday because he wasn't well. If he had a portaloo in the car and lots of bog rolls then he might have managed! He really was quite unwell. Also re-starting this morning is Quintin Milne who didn't finish Friday night after the Lancer broke its suspension but it's fixed for today.  He's got a fight on his hands though, he reckons the Lancer is giving away 2 seconds a mile to the World Cars.

That means Euan Thorburn and David Bogie are the likely lads today, but then again who can rule out Jock Armstrong, Mike Faulkner  and of course Dom Buckley. Mind you Chris Collie could spring a surprise and of course, Rory Young went rather well yesterday in the National so he will be match fit for today.
