Maccrone returns to SRC for the Grampian
John Maccrone will return to the Scottish Rally Championship for the Grampian Rally on August 13.
The Ford Fiesta R5 driver was forced to miss the RSAC Scottish Rally due to a lack of budget, but will return after four months out with Australian Rhianon Gelsomino co-driving the Msl-prepared car.
“I’ve done the Granite City a couple of times and I know the stages are quite similar,” said Maccrone. “There’s a 16-miler for the Grampian which should be good, nice to sink your teeth into it. I can’t wait, it’s an awesome car to drive I just wish I could drive it more often.”
The Grampian Rally, a new event to the Scottish Rally championship, is based in Aberdeenshire and will get underway from the picturesque Crathes Castle.
It’s the penultimate round of the championship and Garry Pearson could be crowned champion in his first year driving a Fiesta R5.
The Duns driver leads Jock Armstrong but will seal the title with a win on either of the final two rounds. The Galloway Hills Rally is the final round of the series on September 10.
