The demanding forestry stages are starting to take their toll on competitors at the McKelvey Asbestos Bushwhacker Rally, round six of the McGrady Insurance N.I. Rally Championship. Following Derek McGarrity’s retirement after stage three with an oil leak, Barry McKenna is the latest of the top seeds to join the retirement list. His Fiesta has slid into a ditch and although it reportedly has little damage, he is struggling to get back on the road.

Cracking day for Junior 1000 Ecosse Challenge crews at the Memorial Garden Stages Junior Rally near Arbroath on 15th September 2018. This would be the first event that Condor Motorsport Club would run under their own banner at the Condor base. The aerodrome part of the MOD base is a perfect location for a single venue rally but parts of it have been known to cut up badly and this affected the total number of entries. But reports from competitors were very positive on the day and the organisers had listened to previous feedback and dropped some parts and added other better roads. The organisers must be praised for putting on such an enjoyable event.
