The Beatson’s Building Supplies Mull Rally is back

Posted: April 19, 2019 7:10 AM

Fifty years after rally cars first competed up Glen Aros, the Scottish Government published legislation yesterday (Wednesday, April 17) allowing Closed Road Motor Sport to take place in Scotland.

Replacing the 1990 Strathclyde Act means one thing: the Beatson’s Building Supplies Mull Rally is back.

The organisers of Britain’s first ever closed-road rally have been working behind the scenes in readiness for this news. Thanks to that diligence and determination, the route for Beatson’s Building Supplies Mull Rally (October 11-13) has already been approved by Police Scotland and Argyll & Bute Council.

Additional support for the rally has been applied for and granted by Event Scotland.

Friday October 11 this year marks the end of a 1,089-day wait* since John MacCrone and Stuart Loudon won the 2016 Beatson’s Building Supplies Mull Rally. Finally, the likes of MacCrone, Duffy and Harper and 147 other lucky crews get to pit themselves against the Hebridean island’s legendary Tarmac roads.

Clerk of the course, Andy Jardine said:
“The island has missed the event over the last two years, but the sport has missed it as well. Mull is such a special rally for lots of people. Our thanks to everyone at Transport Scotland for pursing this legislation and for enabling the event to come back in time for the 50th anniversary.”

“We also have to express our thanks to Duncan Brown and the Saltire Rally club for all they have done on the Targa Rally and Gravel Sprint over the last two years to keep motorsport alive on this beautiful island.”

Jardine and the rest of the Beatson’s Building Supplies Mull Rally team have no intention of letting the golden anniversary of Britain’s foremost closed-road rally pass without celebration.

Further details of the route, entries, marshalling news and, of course, plans for a golden Beatson’s Building Supplies Mull Rally will be coming your way.

And relax… we’re back. See you on the island.

*Mull Rally organisers were forced to cancel the 2017 and 2018 events for insurance-related reasons. The new law has clarified the position and potential liability to the satisfaction of the Mull Rally team.

Mishnish Lochs will stay silent in October. There’ll be no Group 4 roar up the Glen and the Long One... well, it’ll be shorter than normal this time around.

The Beatson’s Building Supplies Mull Rally – planned for October 8-11 – has been cancelled.

Clerk of the Course Andy Jardine admitted the decision was dictated by ongoing uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. While preparations for the iconic Scottish island rally had been moving forward, with the team behind the sell-out event closely monitoring the Scottish Government’s ‘route out of lockdown,’ the organisers are unwilling to proceed given the possible risk of spreading the virus.

Jardine said: “It was looking good for a while. October seemed so far off and things were opening up again, but now the end of July is looming and we just can’t commit to running the rally not knowing how the situation will develop. It’s tough for the team as we put a lot of effort into developing different ways to work with the coronavirus restrictions, but it isn’t practical to cover all the eventualities and keep everybody safe.

“This year’s been unprecedented in the way we’ve seen our sport simply stopped in its tracks by this pandemic. But we have to remember that an awful lot of people have been – and continue to be – affected in the most tragic way by coronavirus.”

Mull Car Club Chairman, Fred Maclean added:
“While some of the island is preparing for some sort of tourist season in the weeks ahead, there remains uncertainty and many places are not opening. Mull has remained apparently COVID-free throughout the lockdown period and there is a nervousness about what might happen when visitors return.

“This is the right decision for Mull and to ensure the rally is welcomed back in, hopefully, happier times in 2021.”

Demand for Beatson’s Building Supplies Mull Rally remains exceptional, with competitors from across the world keeping in regular contact with the organisers in the hope of securing a place, were the 2020 event to run. Jardine’s keen, however, this enforced break is used to take a look at ways to make a great rally even better.

Jardine said: “After the event missed a couple of years due to the insurance issue, we got the overwhelming message that the Mull Rally was still a competitors’ favourite when we broke the internet as entries opened in 2019.

“This has energised the team to use this break to take a step back and think about a review of the format of the event and we’ll be getting our heads together in the next couple of months to see what can be done to freshen it up a bit.

“It goes without saying, none of our Octobers will be the same this year. We’ll all spend a bit longer watching Peter Taylor’s run through Gribun on YouTube! But the key thing – the only thing – is to stay healthy, keep the island healthy and be back, bigger and better next time.”
