Rally - MSA Tribunal

There have been a number of comments on this page congratulating the winners of the 2015 Scottish Rally Championship, but these might be a trifle premature!

As yet, there has been no official confirmation or announcement from the championship committee, and with good reason. They are probably waiting for the outcome of a Tribunal at MSA HQ in Colnbrook tomorrow.

Although the Reivers Forest Rally results were declared Final (as opposed to Provisional) after the rally in May earlier this year, the Tribunal has the power to change them depending on the outcome of tomorrow’s National Court hearing.

Although there was no official Protest made when results were declared at the conclusion of the event, the MSA Steward highlighted an issue or two which the MSA thought worthy of investigating.

I will say no more at this stage (I got my knuckles rapped last week!) but tomorrow’s decision may well determine the outcome of this year’s title chase.

As you may, or may not, know the quarterly ‘MSA Magazine’ publishes the findings of all National Courts, but since the Autumn edition has just been published, tomorrow’s report will not be made public until the Winter edition - and that won’t be before December.

Naturally those involved will be informed immediately after the Tribunal and the Championship will be able to finalise the points tables for 2015. All should become clear on Thursday morning.

Watch this space, as they say.
