Free Scottish IRC entries on offer

The Intercontinental Rally Challenge has launched a new incentive that will see three drivers from the Scottish Rally Championship will earn a free place in the final round of the 2009 season.

The top three in the Group N standings of the Scottish national series will earn an entry into the RAC MSA Rally of Scotland, which will bring the curtain down on the IRC season in late November.

The series runs over eight rounds with the late Colin McRae and his younger brother Alister – winner of the IRC's pilot event back in 2006 – amongst drivers to have tasted success in the past.

One round of the Scottish season is already complete, with Jock Armstrong, David Bogie and Rory Young filling the top three places in the Group N standings after the Snowman Rally earlier this month. Bogie in particular, who is also competing in the British Rally Championship, could well be an outside bet for points should be secure a slot in the event.

While the route of the Rally of Scotland has yet to be finalised, it is expected to use forest stages in Perthshire, Kinross and Stirlingshire.
