Hankook MSA Scottish Rally Championship

Round 3: Station Garage Mitsubishi Granite City Rally, 17th April
 
Reigning champion David Bogie drove to a commanding victory on round three of the Hankook MSA Scottish Rally Championship.

 
Bogie recorded four scratch times from the event’s six stages aboard his Mitsubishi Evo 9 to finish 17 seconds clear of runner-up Jock Arsmtrong, with last year’s winner Mike Faulkner claiming the final podium place a further 17 seconds back.
 
“It was a good rally,” said Bogie. “Good stages, good competition, a good steady pace – probably a little slower on the first stage getting into the groove – but after that everything came together.”
 
Championship leader Alick Kerr overcame gearbox problems to record his third top-five finish in as many rounds, with a new turbo and set-up changes making for “a totally different and much better handling” car.
 
Top honours in the 1600 category went to Euan Duncan in a Honda Civic, while the most notable of 26 retirements was Shaun Sinclair, who had taken maximum SRC points on the preceding Border Counties Rally.
