Subject to approval from Motorsport UK, the Events calendar for the 2024 Scottish Rally Championship will be as follows:
Following on from a very successful and well received 2023 KNC Groundworks Scottish Rally Championship, the SRC organising team are pleased to confirm a tried & tested, but slightly slimmed down calendar for 2024.
With the Carlisle stages sitting out 2024 whilst the organising team focus on a new event (which forms the reserve event as listed above), we have taken the opportunity to reduce the series to 7 rounds, with the best 5 scores to count.
At the end of this year’s Championship, the SRC team commissioned an end of season survey to get feedback from both competitors & officials on what was good about the 2023 championship, and what could be improved. As ever, it’s difficult to put a calendar together that suits everyone, but we believe what we have landed on will once again provide some of the closest competition in the UK over 7 well organised events, with events evenly spaced- out allowing competitors to plan a realistic season.
The backing of strong sponsors, partners and supporters is vital to putting a championship together, and we are grateful that we have had such fantastic support once again in 2023. In particular, a huge thanks to our title sponsor KNC Groundworks, Championship Partners Albyn Garage and Moates Offshore, our Media partner Royal Aero, Tyre Partner Pirelli & Fuel partner Gulf.
We must also take this opportunity to thank our outgoing title sponsors KNC Groundworks for their enthusiastic support over the 4 years since stepping up to the role in 2019. That support will be properly marked at the final event of the season, the awards evening at the Glasgow Hilton Hotel on 27th January.
Outgoing SRC Chairman Roy Campbell said:
“The Management Committee of the SRC are extremely proud of the 2023 season with particular thanks to the event organisers on running very competitive and enjoyable rallies, including innovative new formats.
The other main asset the championship has is a fantastic competitor base, with registrations up for 2023, and it’s thanks to their continued support that the Championship has been so successful and so well received.
It highlights the competitive nature of the events in Scotland with two crews entering the final stage on the exact same time on three events and the overall Championship only being decided on the final stage of the final round.
Based on the success of the 2023 season we have planned more of the same in 2024 and we wish everyone involved a happy and safe new year.”
Between now and the end of the year Championship Regulations will be updated and sent to MS UK for approval. As always, the breakdown of classes and list of awards and incentives will be reviewed and updated as required to try and keep the championship interesting and relevant to as many competitors and cars as possible.
Registrations for the 2024 Scottish Rally Championship will open early in the New Year once regulations have been approved. Visit the website on www.scottishrallychampionship.co.uk and keep an eye on our social media channels for more details.
