Grant Construction Knockhill Stages, Sunday 20th Feb 2022
The 2022 Burnside Piling Scottish Tarmack Rally Championship gets underway this Sunday the 20th February at Knockhill with the Grant Construction Knockhill Stages Rally. Ahead lie 10 stages totalling some 40 miles with the first car away at 08:31 Hrs.
Heading the entry list is the 2019 Grant Construction Stages winner John Marshall with Craig Wallace in the Ford Fiesta Rally2 followed by the 2021 Scottish Tarmack Champion Alistair Inglis similarly mounted with brother Colin in the shouty seat. Donnie MacDonald will debut his new Fiesta Rally2 now that the Lancer has been sold and he runs at three with Andrew Falconer. And if he makes it back from Snetterton on Saturday night, rallycrosser Andy Scott will run at number 4 in his fearsome Fiesta S2000T with Laura Connell on the circuit maps.
Top 2WD seed is Kyle Adam with Steven Brown in the 2.5 Escort Mk2 ahead of Scott McCombie and Murray Strachan in the Lancer and the irrepressible Ross Hunter and Martin Woodstock in the shit or bust Peugeot 205. That’s quite a top seven and then we come to the next two, the top 1600ccc seeds, Des Campbell/Craig Forsyth in the Peugeot 206 versus the Vauxhall Corsa of Steven Hay/Cameron Dunn. Forget the front runners, this pair will be worth the watch on their own – like twa ‘nits’ fighting over a baldy man’s single hair.
Rounding off the top ten will be English visitors Darren James Nugent and Liam Whiteley in their Mk2 if they make it up the M6 ok after this week’s storms.
There isn’t a huge entry with just 44 cars and crews, but the quality is there for a good day’s competition and entertainment. And this being Knockhill, spectators are not just allowed but welcomed, so for your first taste of live action this year, you know where to be. There are various age related ticket prices, and even the auld gits can get a concession ticket!
