MSA Scottish Rally Championship: McDonald & Munro Speyside Stages

MSA Scottish Rally Championship: McDonald & Munro Speyside Stages

Round 2:  21 April

David Bogie and John Rowan were untouchable, winning all ten stages of the McDonald & Munro Speyside Stages in Elgin.

Nearly 100 crews took the start of the event with the unseasonably warm and dry conditions presenting a sometimes dusty challenge in the forests, vastly different to the snow and ice of the opening round in Inverness.

Bogie defeated his rivals by over a minute to take a record ninth Speyside Stages victory ahead of the returning Jock Armstrong’s Subaru Impreza.

Fred Milne took his Impreza WRC to third place in the SRC standings thanks to the final overall podium spot going to an unregistered Rhys Yates.

1 David Bogie/John Rowan (Skoda Fabia R5) 38m34s
2 Jock Armstrong/ Cameron Fair (Subaru Impreza 10) 39m50s
