Event Summary

At Knockhill, 2022 will see Scottish and British rallying gear up for one of the biggest celebrations since Colin McRae became Britain’s first World Rally Champion in 1995. The event, will not only commemorate Colin becoming the youngest ever World Rally Champion but also recognise and celebrate the achievements of Jimmy McRae, Alister and 3rd generation rising star Max McRae. Taking centre stage over the weekend will be the second running of the invitational McRae Rally Challenge, last run at Knockhill in 2015.

 The McRae Rally Challenge will incorporate a huge variety of rally attractions, combining static displays with dramatic on-stage rally action. The McRae Rally Challenge event is a special invitational for 50 leading national and international rally crews, which will feature two one-day single venue rallies, a power-stage finale on Sunday as well as a Junior rally event. An eagerly awaited feature will be the “Battle of the McRae’s” as three generations of the McRae family compete head-to-head to determine who is the fastest!

Event Info

In 2015 we assembled the largest ever collection of “Colin’s competition cars” ever seen in Scotland which have been driven by the 1995 World Champion during his meteoric career. From his first competition Mini, to the British Championship winning Sierra Cosworth, L555 BAT World Championship winning Subaru and Colin’s project R4 rally car, the display was world class. For the 2022, interest is strong from owners of these historic cars and we are anticipating even more than at the first McRae Rally Challenge to be on display and paraded on track.

Off track, Owners’ Clubs of the cars that Colin rallied, namely Ford and Subaru, including a display of Series McRae road cars, will be massed in huge numbers addition to the colour and spectacle of this special event.
