The year starts with the Grant stages Rally at Knockhill, Single Venue Multi Stage Rallying Knockhill style....(will it snow again)
On Sunday 20th February 2022, the season will start with one of the most spectacular events that Knockhill hosts, with the 12th running of the Grant Construction Rally. This single-venue rally is Round One of the Scottish Tarmack Rally Championship and always attracts some top crews as well as others entering their first event.
It be one of two rally events at Knockhill this year with the McRae Rally Challenge returning in July after an absense of 7 years since the inaugrual event in 2015. All based at Knockhill, the Grant Stages rally brings rallying closer to the spectators than any other event in Scotland as viewing is superb and the open paddock allows for spectators to get close to the competition cars.
A wealth of top cars and crews are expected to enter this unique rally covering 8 stages and almost 35 competition stage miles. The event will be the opening round of the Scottish Tarmack Rally Championship, the Scottish Border Rally Championship and the Border Ecosse Club Championship.
With action taking place on the main Knockhill track and surrounding venue roads, visible action can be seen on the horizon across the entire venue. There are 6 classes eligible to enter, from the diminutive 1400cc, 4-wheel drive Supercars, through to Classic and Historic models, expect to see a host of machinery being put through their paces on stage. Within the main paddock, spectators can see the rally crews work on the cars as they prepare for the next stage.
Last time the entry list boasted Metro 6R4s, Evo 9s, Subaru Turbos as well as the classic Escort MK1 and IIs; and this year should be no different. The first car is due off at 9.00am with action all the way through to darkness.
