Snow­man by name, Snow­man by na­ture. The open­ing round of this year’s ARR Craib Scot­tish Rally Cham­pi­onship lived up to its name and pro­vided a re­mark­able first out­right vic­tory for Don­nie Macdon­ald and An­drew Fal­coner. At the start of the event last Satur­day morn­ing, win­ning was the fur­thest thought from their minds. A top 10 was the aim, a top six the hope. A win was merely the dream.

At the rally fin­ish, if there were any doubters, the tak­ings in the Jurys Inn bar on Satur­day night must surely have as­sured the ho­tel’s con­tin­ued spon­sor­ship of the Arnold Clark/ Jurys Inn Snow­man Rally next year.
