Exciting new Clashmore stage awaits IRC crews

1 Mins read

The Intercontinental Rally Challenge crews will test themselves on a new stage at this years running of the RACMSA Rally of Scotland. The Clashmore stage will run instead of the Achray stage, which has been removed due to an error in a recent Land reform legislation.

The new stage is to be be run on Sunday, alongside two runs through a slightly modified, but still spectacular, Loch Ard stage.

Clerk of the Course, Iain Campbell, is confident that the new stage will be a winner with crews and fans alike.

“Our new stage, Clashmore, is a cracker”, stated Campbell.

Campbell also gave a description of the stage, “It's 16km in length and, if anything, it's more of a technical challenge than we had before. The start is very narrow with off-camber corners before joining a new forest road that takes in part of the Loch Ard stage. The final two-thirds are very fast and the committed driver will make the most of this test.”

As a result of the change, Sunday’s remote service will now be located at Aberfoyle’s Wood Centre, and the National B crews are likely to be located just outside of Aberfoyle, at the Forestry Commission’s district office.
