IRC: McRae savours ‘monster’ stage

Jimmy McRae predicts drama from the final stage of the IRC season in Scotland
Rallying legend Jimmy McRae has described the final stage of RACMSA Rally of Scotland as a “monster” after driving through the route recently. 



The five-time British Rally champion and father of 1995 WRC champion Colin McRae will see his youngest son Alister – himself a former British and Asia-Pacific champion – competing on the event in a Proton Satria Neo Super 2000.

Looking forward to the event, McRae declared that the Loch Ard stage will be a major challenge for crews. 



Totalling 33.52 kilometres, the stage will be used twice on Saturday November 21, once in the morning and once in the afternoon. It will be televised live throughout the Eurosport network. 


“The organisers have found a true monster stage to create a sting in the tail and this will ensure the result will remain in doubt until the cars clear the stage,” he said.



“The stage is medium narrow throughout on a good hard based surface but there will never be a time for the drivers to take a breather and their powers of concentration and fitness will be tested to the limit.”
