jcmreivers13 (5)With a tight schedule to get to France we didn’t get much chance to enjoy the Jim Clark Reivers Rally but what we saw on the Bothwell stages was more than enough. Through those two stages Euan Thorburn & Paul Beaton (Focus WRC) were fastest on one stage with David Bogie & Kevin Rae (Focus WRC) fastest on the other. Thorburn led and with fastest time on the next two stages to Bogie’s 1, he held a small lead. More fastest stage times saw this extended out to a 20 second lead ahead of the final stage before disaster struck. Thorburn had issues and dropped half a minute as Bogie set his 3rd fastest stage of the event to take victory by 10 seconds. Barry Groundwater & Neil Shanks (Evo VIII) were third almost 2 minutes back with Steve Bannister & Louise Sutherland (Escort MkII) the top 2WD crew. Read More »

SONY DSCWith a bumper field and a largely pleasant weather forecast the lanes of the Scottish Borders were set to be buzzing to the sound of rally cars. In the BRC the event was once again dominated by the Citroen DS3 R3T’s. On his less favoured surface Jukka Korhonen & Marko Salminen took an overnight lead with 5 fastest stage times from 6 stages. 2nd were Alastair Fisher & Gordon Noble with Tom Cave & Ieuan Thomas just 3rd. On the opening stage of Saturday Korhonen almost blew all of his lead with an early spin on Swinton. With the lead now slashed and Cave charging hard from 3rd place followed by Osian Pryce & Dale Furniss from an overnight 4th place, the rally became a 4 way battle. Cave set a string of fastest stage times with Pryce fastest on all the others bar one for Korhonen. With just one stage to go Korhonen’s lead was just 0.1 s over Cave, whilst Pryce was a comfortable 3rd having passed Fisher. Korhonen had the bit between his teeth and held back the Welsh charge to set fastest stage time and win by 2 seconds from Cave. Read More »
