Thrilling finale to the season
. . . and sponsor confirmed for 2016 STRC Championship!
The Blackwood Plant Hire Scottish Tarmack Rally Championship has experienced one of its most exciting seasons ever. The final event of 2015 took place at the hugely popular Kingdom Stages event at Crail. Organised by Glenrothes Motor Sport Club, with the support of sponsors Curvy Kit sponsors, this ultimate race to the podium was on the much-loved 60-mile route at Crail Airfield.
With a maximum rally entry, the winners were John Rintoul and Ross Hynd, with Bruce Edwards and Jim Smith coming in second and Gary and Gordon Adam third.
The season’s overall champions had already been decided going into Crail, with John Marshall and Scott Crawford taking the prestigious title as 2015 STRC champions in their Mk2 Escort. Second and third places, however, went to the wire, with Nigel Feeney in his class 5 Subaru Impreza securing second place honours in front of Ross Carbry in his class 1 Vauxhall Corsa.
Rounding off the 2015’s events will be the Awards Ceremony. This year the prestigious black tie event and prize giving is being held at the Lovat Hotel in Perth on Saturday, December 5.

I have attached a copy of the Final Results. As you are aware following a serious incident on Stage 7the decision was taken to abandon the event and the results were published final to the end of leg 1. The serious incident tragically took the life of co-driver Andy Mort and I am sure that Sarah and Andy’s extended family have been greatly comforted by the emotional support given by all those within the Motorsport family and we also wish John MacCrone a speedy recovery.
