GALLOWAY HILLS RALLY

As the final round, the Galloway Hills Rally was not a scoring round for us and my driver took the decision not to contest it, giving me a chance to dust off the 99 for another blast through the woods. Martin MacCabe, a Scottish Championship regular kindly agreed to read the notes. With a two car team bolstered by Grant Inglis in his lovely new MK2 Escort we made a good spectacle as the service barges towed us into the Rally HQ in the pretty town of Castle Douglas.

 

News from Jim Valentine (June 2016)

With the suspension of the Roger Albert Clark Rally the Saab Historic Rally Team has been somewhat in the doldrums, not helped by my taking a sabbatical to do the Peking to Paris Rally in June/July this year.
 
If you would like to follow Jonathan Lodge and me on the event see www.p2pamx.com where there's already a load of material about our preparations and testing in Morocco.
 
So to give you all plenty of time to prepare I am suggesting we put together a team of Saabs to contest the Rally Isle of Man in September, 2017 under the Saab Historic Rally Team Banner
 
If we can get a feel for numbers I will see what we can do as a team entry with the organisers.  So please get in touch if you would be interested.  Plenty of time to get a car ready between now and then....
 
If the Roger Albert runs in November 2017 we'll look to get a team entry there as well.
 
All the best,
 

Jim Valentine

North of Scotland

There is no formal Branch currently in operation (largely as a result of the sheer geographical spread of members across this area) and therefore no regular meetings.
Where possible, there is usually an  SOC 'presence' at gatherings across the region organised by other clubs, motor museums or advertised on web forums (principally UKSaabs).

The dates known so far for 2017 at which we aim to be represented are:

  • 23rd Apr    FBHVC 'Drive It Day' 2017  - various local runs (I'll be attending the one organised by the Highland Classic Motor Club, Inverness)
  • 7th May     Forres Theme Day
