Im­pres­sive Cur­rie head­ing for Scot­tish

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Alas­dair Cur­rie will make his gravel rally de­but af­ter a dom­i­nant class win on the Manx Na­tional ear­lier this month.

The 18-year-old over­came me­chan­i­cal trou­ble on his Peu­geot 106 to win the B10 class by over three min­utes de­spite be­ing on three cylin­ders and hav­ing to restart the car on mul­ti­ple oc­ca­sions mid-stage.

Now the young­ster will de­but on the Scot­tish Rally, with the hopes of en­ter­ing next year’s Ford Fi­esta ST Tro­phy that sup­ports the BTRDA.

“What we do next year de­pends on how this year goes,” said the Mull young­ster. “The pace has been there on events but we just need a bit of luck.”

Cur­rie com­peted in Ju­nior for­mu­lae in Scot­land be­fore two Mull ap­pear­ances and the Manx ear­lier this month.

He had been run­ning 20th on Mull Rally last year be­fore he lost the head­lights and hem­or­rhaged time.
