IRC: New base for RAC MSA Rally of Scotland

RAC MSA Rally of Scotland shifts base from Stirling to Perth.

RAC MSA Rally of Scotland will be based in the city of Perth when it runs for a second time from 15-17 October.

The penultimate round of the Intercontinental Rally Challenge operated from Stirling last season but will now be housed at Perth Airport, where the event headquarters and main service park will also be located.

As in 2009, the event will get underway with two stages in the grounds of Scone Palace in the outskirts of Perth on the evening of Friday 15 October.

In addition to two passes through the Craigvinean stage, Saturday's opening leg will feature two runs through the Drummond Hill and Errochty tests, which were both used just once last year.

Sunday's route takes in two passes of the Achray and Loch Ard stages split by a remote service halt in Callander. Loch Ard is the rally's longest stage at 33.52 kilometres. The event's total competitive distance is 208.08 kilometres.

Stirling will still play an active role in the rally as the host of the ceremonial finish on the evening of Sunday 17 October.
