Dunoon Presents Argyll Rally is GO!

Posted: May 13, 2017 4:16 PM

New rally opens its doors for entries as much-anticipated event is launched

Regulations for the Dunoon Presents Argyll Rally have now been released and entries are officially open for the exciting new 24th June event.

Backed by Dunoon Presents and the local community, the event will bring rallying back to the region after a break of over ten years and is organised by Mull Car Club.

The all-gravel rally will form round five of the ARR Craib MSA Scottish Rally Championship which will bring some of the best drivers in Scotland and further afield to the region to tackle stages in the forests surrounding Dunoon.

The event is also a qualifying round of the ANWCC Stage Rally Championship, SD34 MSG Stage Rally Championship and the www.c2rallyparts.co.uk Ecosse Challenge.

A total of eight stages offering 45 miles of competitive driving are on offer for crews, all easily accessible from Dunoon Stadium which will play host to Rally HQ and the event service area. The close proximity of the event base to the stages will ensure low road mileage for competitors, making the event as cost effective as possible.

The event kicks off on Friday 23rd June with pre-event scrutiny and documentation taking place at Dunoon Stadium from 2:00pm. To bring rallying into the heart of the community, the event will commence with a spectacular ceremonial start in Dunoon town centre at around 8.45am on Saturday 24th June.

After an action packed day in the forests, crews will return to spray the champagne at round 5.00pm later that day with the awards ceremony taking place in the Stadium from around 9.00pm.

First known as the Burmah Rally, the event originated from the early 1970’s where the British Rally Championship assembled in the region and saw classic battles in the local forests with names such as Roger Clark and Jimmy McRae.

Last run in 2003 by Lankarkshire Car Club, the event fell victim to the austerity measures of the era and ended an almost 40 year history. Thanks to the support of the locals and businesses in Dunoon, the Argyll Rally returns once again in 2017.

Chris Woodcock, Clerk of the Course and his team have been working hard over the past few months to prepare an event worthy of continuing its prestigious heritage and they believe they have the formula just right.

“It’s been a lot of hard work but it’s a real honour to be able to come back to the region and put on an event in the Scottish Rally Championship” says Woodcock.

“The people of Dunoon are so excited by the prospect of the event returning to the local woodlands and we are of course indebted to the support from Dunoon Presents and the local businesses.

We have a great route planned and everything is really starting to come together. I would urge competitors to enter the rally as early as possible; interest in the event has been exceptionally high.”

Online entry is now available alongside event regulations on the website, link below.

Accommodation offer for Argyll Rally marshals

Posted: March 27, 2017 9:14 AM

Volunteer marshals who attend the Dunoon Presents Argyll Rally will be entitled to a generous discount on accommodation for the event thanks to the support of Argyll Holidays Hunters Quay Holiday Village.

The Mull Car Club organised event will take place on 24th June 2017 in Dunoon and event organisers are seeking a small army of dedicated volunteer marshals to assist with the safe running of the event which is anticipated to bring competitors from across the UK to the region.

As accommodation in the area is at a premium in holiday season, the Hunters Quay Holiday Village have offered a great saving for marshals, meaning they can get a four berth mobile home for less than ?250 for a three night stay.

The all-gravel rally will form round five of the ARR Craib MSA Scottish Rally Championship and marks the first time stage rallying has taken place in the forests for over ten years. The event is hosted by Dunoon Stadium which will house Rally HQ, documentation, scrutineering and the rally service area.

Chief Marshal John Clayton believes this offer is too good to miss.
"Of course the rally takes place in a busy period for the area so we suspect accommodation will be filling up fast locally" he says. "This is a great way for our marshals to enjoy a luxurious break whilst helping the event run as safely as possible" he says.

"It's perfectly placed and only five minutes from Rally HQ and just 10 miles from the stages. The event extends its thanks to Argyll Holidays for their generous support of the rally".

Dunoon Presents the all new Argyll Rally

Posted: March 10, 2017 8:45 AM

Stage rallying returns to Argyll for the first time in 10 years with new-look event

Mull Car Club is proud to announce outline details of the Dunoon Presents Argyll Rally which will take place on 24th June 2017 in Dunoon and the nearby forests.

The rally has been made possible with support from Dunoon Presents and aims to support local business by bringing the event to the town.

The all-gravel rally will form round five of the ARR Craib MSA Scottish Rally Championship and marks the first time stage rallying has taken place in the forests for over ten years.

The event is hosted by Dunoon Stadium which will house Rally HQ, documentation and scrutineering. The facility will also play host to the rally service area ensuring a compact and atmospheric weekend for crews and spectators alike.

Both competitors and rally fans will be in for a treat as some of the UK's best rally drivers contest over 40 miles of classic forests in the region and all just a walking distance from the rally base at the Stadium. The rally will commence with a spectacular ceremonial start in Dunoon town centre.

First known as the Burmah Rally, the event originated from the early 1970's where the British Rally Championship assembled in the region and saw classic battles in the local forests with names such as Roger Clark and Jimmy McRae.

Last run in 2003 by Lankarkshire Car Club, the event fell victim to the austerity measures of the era and without inclusion in the Scottish Rally Championship in 2004, ended an almost 40 year history.

In more recent times, Mull Car Club attempted to rejuvenate the concept around six years ago. But as the SRC continues to grow from strength to strength, the opportunity for a new round of the series was created. Thanks to the support of the locals and businesses in Dunoon, the Argyll Rally will be reborn in 2017.

Chris Woodcock, Clerk of the Course for the event believes it's the perfect time to resurrect the rally.
"The heritage of this event takes some beating and anyone around at that time of the original events always has very fond memories of coming to Dunoon" he says.

"Scottish Rallying is at its prime right now and has a huge following both on and off events and we are truly excited to bring the sport back to the region. We extend our thanks to the SRC for inclusion in their championship which will ensure an exciting days action in the Argyll forests.

We are also indebted to Dunoon Presents (the businesses) and the locals for all their support and allowing the event to grace the region once again."

More information on the Argyll Rally will be available over the coming weeks.
