Round 3: RSAC Scottish Rally, 19 May
David Bogie recorded the 50th rally win of his career with victory on round three of the championship, the RSAC Scottish Rally.
The five-time MSA Scottish champion, co-driven by Kevin Rae, steered his Skoda Fabia R5 to five out of the six stage wins to beat Mark McCulloch and Michael Hendry by over a minute. Rory Young and Paul Beaton grabbed the final podium spot, 19 seconds further back.
Based in Lockerbie, the Scottish Rally took the crews through classic forest tests including Twiglees, Castle O’er and Rivox, with the warm and sunny conditions generating significant dust trails and adding to the challenge.
