Media interest spikes ahead of McRae Rally Challenge event this weekend

Today, BBC news cameras were on site to film an exclusive preview for the McRae Rally Challenge event sponsored by Beatson’s Building Supplies, set to take place this weekend (16/17 May).


Both, Jimmy McRae and Gordon Shedden were on hand to offer their own unique perspectives on the impending action at Knockhill. And for Gordon, there was an added treat of being given the opportunity to take one of childhood favourites on track for a few demonstration laps – an iconic RS200 – which will be displayed and paraded at Knockhill this weekend.


Likewise, Jimmy McRae limbered up for his ‘zero’ car duties at the McRae Rally Challenge by taking the Stobart liveried Escort for a spin in front of BBC cameras. Both will have more press duties to fulfil tomorrow before the real action starts at 1pm on Saturday afternoon.

Make sure you keep your eyes peeled for the BCC piece and remember to pre-book tickets for the event – Knockhill’s biggest Rally event ever! Tickets will also be available at the gate all weekend.
