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

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.
