Rally - Junior rallying




Digby has been in touch with news of the latest event which will be used to promote the Ecosse Junior 1000 Rally series. This will be of interest not just to 14 to 17 year olds, but those who are 12 or 13 and are just as desperate to get started but want to find out more, now!

It might also be of interest to parents because this rather special day has a wider appeal.

Organised by Knockhill Race Circuit on Saturday the 21st of October the  'Teen Test Driver Day' will offer all youngsters between the ages of 13 and 17 the chance to get behind the wheel of a road car in a safe environment, and that includes rally cars.

So if you have youngsters at home who are mad daft on rallying, here is the chance to find out what's involved before you enter into an alternative life where the offspring are either in school or in the garage, as opposed to bunking off and hanging around betting shops.

Knockhill has a group of blokes and blokess instructors who are awfy nice and patient and ideal for this kind of day out, so it's worth a thought.

Also in attendance will be the Ecosse Junior 1000 Challenge 'magnificent marquee' and staff so you know what to look out for when you get arrive. And who knows there might even be some tablet left in Rhona's tin after Kames - that would be reason enough to attend on its own!

There will also be some experienced youngsters on hand so that you can ask questions of them and not just the auld folks. That's because there will also be some advanced driver training for those 14-17 year olds who have justy completed the 2017 championship series and that will highlight the next steps for ambitious young competition drivers.
