Rally - Speyside tribute

A nice touch … 63 Car Club, the organisers of the McDonald & Munro Speyside Stages Rally had invited a guest ‘starter’ to the rally start in Cooper Park and was introduced to the massed spectators over the public tannoy. Stuart Kennedy is the son of Ken Kennedy who was Lands and Parks Manager for Moray Council when the club first approached the Council with the idea of a ‘city centre’ stage as a means of introducing the sport to the local folks and general public.

That was back in 1999. Hard to believe the first Cooper Park test was held quite so long ago – in the last century!

Over the years this double run round the Park has proved to be such a success that it has become part of the fabric of the event, and it’s all thanks to some forward thinking from Moray Council and their staff. Nice one Stuart.
