This will be the first time that we visit Scotland in the RDRC. We've been to Ireland, Northern Ireland and Wales multiple times, so it's just fair that we also visit the home of Colin McRae! The stages is far from easy, they are fast and has a lot of dangers around. In addition to this, it's typical muddy British conditions, and they have been inspired by Wales some years ago when it comes to how to set up a rally. This will be a very challenging rally, covering 128km of special stages. This will be an experience for all the participants, and it's clear that it's more than just outright speed that will be important here!
After Some of the different classes and championships have already been decided, but there is still a lot to fight for in the championship. It will also be very interesting to see if RDRC-2 gave throw in a seventh different winner in seven events. It's been a very interesting season in that class, that's for sure! a slight change in the standings after the tarmac made a difference in Spain, we are not any closer to any drivers taking any class-titles early. The fight for the titles and podiums are raging on, both overall and in the different classes. We didn't get an outright RDRC-2 win last time out, and while it looks unlikely that it will happen this season it is certainly possible. The last time RDRC visited New Zealand it was the same feeling, but that gave MINI and Emil Pribanic their only overall-win, so this is a rally that can throw up a surprise or three!
