The Scots enjoy a proud motorsport heritage. Clark and Stewart, Coulthard and McNish. Now you can count the Scottish Mini Cooper Cup amongst its hall of famers. Sure, it’s not at the coal face of modern racing technology but it certainly encapsulates the very essence of the sport. Equal, nimble and relatively cheap-to-run machinery is always good for close, competitive racing and that’s exactly what the championship offers. So, if you’re not adverse to the age-old art of paint swapping and panel bashing then this is well-worth-a-look, dinner time viewing.

As national stereotyping goes, you can’t go wrong with claiming that the Irish do love their rallying. RPM Motorsport seems to agree, showing as it is the first two rounds of the Northern Irish series this week. Derek McGaritty took wins at both the Kirkistown and Bishopscourt events to establish a healthy lead atop a championship which boasts more WRC machinery than, well, the WRC circa 2009.
