The stories and tales about Scottish rallying that you won't read or hear elsewhere although there was little in the way of scandal and gossip at the Solway Coast Rally this year. No doubt due to the fact there was no overnight stay in the Dundrennan Hilton as the Tyneside beckoned on Sunday. No time to witness the shenanigans or participate in the on-site revelry. So this collection of snippets is more boring than interesting, although still informative and educational! Having said that, anyone with broken ribs and imagination should avoid reading the end bits although Iain Wilson and Mark McCulloch raised a smile or two with their verbal exchange when Mark had his bad luck. The event also marked the anniversary of one of the most notorious incidents in Scottish rallying, and its outcome. Truly a 'bum deal'.
