Grant Construction Rally
Feb 12, 2017 9:00 AM (Africa/Abidjan)
On Sunday 12th February 2017, the season will start with one of the most spectacular events that Knockhill hosts, with the 7th running of the Grant Construction Rally. It is a unique, single-venue rally spectacular and will feature some of Scotland’s leading rally crews and cars. All based at Knockhill, the Grant Construction Stages rally brings rallying closer to the spectators than any other event in Scotland and has all the festive fun that the New Year can bring. A maximum entry of 60 cars are expected to enter this unique rally covering 8 stages and almost 35 competition stage miles. The event will be the opening round of the Scottish Tarmac Rally Championship, the Scottish Border Rally Championship and the Border Ecosse Club Championship. With action taking place on the main Knockhill track and surrounding venue roads, visible action can be seen on the horizon across the entire venue. With 6 classes eligible from diminutive 1400cc, 4-wheel drive Supercars, through to Classic and Historic models, expect to see a host of machinery being put through their paces on stage. Last year the entry list boasted Metro 6R4s, Evo 9s, Subaru Turbos as well as the classic Escort MK1 and IIs; and this year should be no different. The first car is due off at 8.30am with action all the way through to darkness.
