Most of the events offered by leading international classic car rally organiser Bespoke Rallies are lengthy adventures in far flung areas of the globe. However, the company is well aware that not all enthusiasts have the time or wherewithal to contest such epic challenges. In recognition of this, it is re-running the four day Highland 1000, which proved so popular last year and ended in climactic fashion with just 12 seconds separating the first two cars home.
Suitable for all skill levels, this year’s contest will take place on September 25 to 29 and start and finish in Falkirk – the home of the unique Falkirk Wheel. It will wind its way through some of Scotland’s finest scenery, taking in numerous familiar landmarks en route. The emphasis will be on fun, and the regularity tests will take place on quiet, largely deserted roads. The main entry will be split into six classes, which between them cater for cars built from 1920 right through to 1989, while there is a Touring option for those seeking a more relaxed drive.
