Scot­tish Rally Cham­pi­onship cam­paigner Shaun Sin­clair will step up from his usual Subaru Im­preza S9 WRC to an S14B for the Grampian Rally af­ter hir­ing a car from Kenny Mckinstry.

Sin­clair’s S9 is be­ing re­built ready for the Scot to re­turn to the Manx af­ter a two-year hia­tus from the is­land.

He had planned to rent Melvyn Evans’ S12B, but while in Ul­ster with his son quad bik­ing, Dave We­ston Jr com­pleted a deal to hire the car. “It was al­most over, I was go­ing to pull the pin,” said Sin­clair. “I sent a text mes­sage to Kenny at short no­tice. It’s a proper tool: it will take time to set­tle in. I’m stoked about it.”

Sin­clair drove Hugh Hunter’s Ford Fi­esta R5 on the DMACK Carlisle Stages fin­ish­ing 15th over­all. He strug­gled to adapt to the R5 and re­turned to his S9 for the RSAC Scot­tish Rally where he re­tired.
