The Grant Construction Stages Rally took place at Knockhill today (Sunday 24th February). The annual season opener saw its usual mixture and drama and intrigue as a strong field set about conquering almost 40 stage miles of the Knockhill venue.
Car racing specialist, Andrew Kirkcaldy took an early advantage in his MkII Escort, leading the opening two stages by 7 seconds. However, by the end of SS3, the pairing of John Marshall and Scott Crawford had overturned the deficit to lead by 4 seconds.

As the day continued, the Beatson’s Motorsport pairing held a strong advantage at the head of the field, despite a strong push by Nigel Feeney in the closing stages. Even a last-minute spin couldn’t derail the Marshall juggernaut as they finished the day 7 seconds ahead of the field to claim their second successive Grant Construction Rally Stages victory at Knockhill.

A massive thanks to all the crews, drivers, marshals and officials for a thoroughly entertaining day at Knockhill. Look forward to doing it all again in 2020.
