Dou­ble win­ner leads ca­pac­ity en­try for the Fly­ing Scots­man rally

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Bri­tain’s big­gest rally for vin­tage cars, the Fly­ing Scots­man, will start from Belvoir Cas­tle in Le­ices­ter­shire on Fri­day morn­ing and fin­ish at Gle­nea­gles on Sun­day af­ter­noon.

A ca­pac­ity en­try of 110 pre-war cars from all over the world will con­test the eighth run­ning of the En­durance Rally As­so­ci­a­tion’s event, which is widely re­garded as the lead­ing and most de­mand­ing rally of its type.

The cars and crews will cover nearly 700 miles from Le­ices­ter­shire to Perth and Kin­ross, with spe­cial tests and reg­u­lar­ity tests as well as nav­i­ga­tional sec­tions.

Wil­liam Med­calf (1925 Bent­ley) will aim for a hat-trick of wins but faces tough op­po­si­tion from Peter Lovett (BMW 328) and 2011 win­ner An­drew Davies (Ri­ley 12/4 Spe­cial).

Spec­ta­tor in­for­ma­tion is avail­able at en­duro­rally.com.
