Organisers of the GWF Energy Merrick Stages Rally are looking forward to returning to Wigtown in September for the fifth consecutive year.

The event, which counts as the penultimate round of the ARR Craib MSA Scottish Rally Championship, has been given new impetus thanks to the support of Dumfries and Galloway Council, as part of its major events strategy.

Jointly promoted by Machars Car Club and Scottish Sporting Car Club, the “Merrick” will again draw the country’s leading rally crews to the renowned Glentrool and Galloway forest stages.

Said Clerk of the Course Graham Bisset: “The communities we visit on the rally route – and in particular Wigtown – have been very supportive over the years, which assures us of a great welcome to visiting competitors, spectators and officials. We are really pleased to have secured additional backing from Dumfries and Galloway Council, which recognises the rally’s significance as a major event within the region. We look forward to increasing collaboration to develop the event in conjunction with the Council and the people of Galloway.”

Documentation, scrutineering and the prize giving will again be based at Wigtown’s county building, while the Glencaird central service area is located adjacent to the Glentrool stages.

As well as the Scottish Rally Championship, the “Merrick” is also a counter in the Ecosse Challenge, the Five of Clubs Championship, Machars Car Club Championship and Scottish Sporting Car Club Championship.

Details of the event , which takes place on Saturday September 6th, will be published on the website http://www.merrickstages.co.uk
