The Scottish Borders Hill Rally Saturday the 20th & Sunday the 21St November 2010

Dear Motorsport Enthusiast,

You should all know by now that the Scottish Hill Rally Club is running the Scottish Borders Hill Rally on the 20th & 21st November 2010, at the same venue as the successful 2009 event, The Forrest Estate, St Johns Town of Dalry, New Galloway.

Some of you will be familiar with the venue as it has played host to the 2009 Scottish Borders Hill Rally, The Scottish Cross Country Championship back in June, the British Cross Country Championship also in June, has also hosted numerous rally test days and the Solway Coast Rally. The venue has certainly got a motorsport pedigree that we can all enjoy.

The 2010 Borders Hill Rally will has again enjoyed a sell out with the competitors, at this early point in the run up to the event we have 50 entries received A FULL ENTRY! As last year we are running a reserve list.

Some footage from last years event:

So if you want to see some of the best off road motorsport action in the UK and almost certainly a wide variety of high spec cross country racing vehicle then the 2010 Borders Hill Rally is the place to be in November for what will almost certainly be one of the hotly contested events of the year.

The organising team took on board the interest of last yearís event and worked with the landowners to see how we can improve the event further. To this end we have looked at the stages and made subtle changes, we looked at the running order of the stages, we looked at the service area and made it bigger, and in fact itís been moved to give more flat unobstructed space.

This year we are offering competitors Sixteen stages over two days, comprising some 100 miles and with minimal liaison miles not on public roads (No road tax or mot needed)

Full details will be available on the club website:
