The Rally Group B Shrine proudly supports the Colin McRae Rally Challenge set for July 2022 return to Knockhill Racing Circuit at the Knockhill Racing Circuit in Scotland.
Organisers of the McRae Rally Challenge are delighted to announce that this unique celebratory rally festival event will return to Knockhill, Fife in Scotland on the weekend of July 2nd & 3rd 2022. Initially planned for 2020 to coincide with the 25th anniversary of Colin McRae winning his momentous World Rally Championship in 1995, the pandemic delayed event will celebrate the rallying successes of the three generations of the McRae family, with Grandfather Jimmy, fathers Colin & Alister and Grandson Max’s rally exploits and achievements all being marked.
Jimmy McRae, 5 times British Rally Champion said “We had hoped to run the event in 2020 and Max would have been a Junior rally driver then, but one benefit of the delay is that Max will have just turned 18 and Alister, Max and myself will be competing head to head in the same rally. I don’t know if three generations have ever done that before, but I am hoping that I can show both Max, and his Dad, that Grandfather is still pretty handy behind the wheel! Whatever happens, I know it will be a great event with loads of action on and off track and loads of great rallying pals having fun”.
Stuart Gray, Knockhill Director of Events said “The inaugural event in 2015 was huge success and we are all looking forward to the 2nd running of the event which will feature an invitational single venue rally with many rally stars reunited with their original rally cars from the 70’s and 80’s; Group 4, Group A and Group B, current rally contenders as well as special guests. We had a collection of display rally cars, the like of which had never been seen in Scotland, including 23 of Colin’s rally cars on display and paraded on track and this is expected to be bigger next year. The format is so welcoming for all rally fans, so the only option was to delay until this special event could run for all the drivers, fans and special rally car owners”.
Mr. Gray would like to extend his invitation to all of owners of original Group B cars, either road (homologation) or rally versions, with promise of display and/or track time should they wish to attend.
