Impressive Currie heading for Scottish
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.
