27 Apr: Granite City Entry List

… Coltel Granite City Rally, Saturday 2nd May …

Full Entry list for Saturday’s Coltel Granite City Rally below, but as yet no spectator information. As soon as I get anything I will add it in here.

It would also appear that there is little in the way of facilities for the Press, as has been the case for the past two years, and no Press Releases have been issued by the organisers. In that respect the gathering of information for post event reports will be difficult – but it hasn’t stopped dear old JB yet. So fear not rally fans, JB will be skulking about in the background somewhere.

However, restricted access may affect the quality and quantity of any on-event information which will naturally have an impact on the post event report. So please bear with me in these difficult and turbulent times.

Which is all a great pity as the organisers have laid on an excellent route and attracted a cracking entry. At the moment it looks as though anyone in the top 15 could win this, although David Bogie will definitely start as favourite.

But it’s not just all about the top seeds. It will be good to see Andy Horne back out in the Focus and Keith Robathan will be up for the fight with Steve Bannister, especially as Keith has got the ‘Hebridean Hurricane’ navigating for him this weekend! Malloch Nicoll has blown the cobwebs out of his Lancer and sprayed his oxters with WD40 ahead of the weekend and the Tuer brothers look as though they have replaced their rapid MG ZR with a Ford Fiesta R200 so that will be interesting. And Murray Coulthard will debut his new car this weekend having replaced his Suzuki engined Nova with a Citroen C2R2 Max while right down at the far end of the field, Sue Hynd will be making her debut as a driver. The brave and fearless husband Tom has signed up for co-driving duties having spent many nights preparing her Peugeot 106.

No lady driver has ever won the Granite City so go get ‘em Sue. We’re all with you.
