The Ecosse Challenge was started in 2003 to continue the work commenced by the late Colin McRae to encourage young rally drivers. While the championship has evolved since then, its primary goal remains the provision of “a controlled and level playing field where the stars of the future can be nurtured and the stars of the present and past can have a play without breaking the bank”.
Previous participants in the championship who have gone on to success at higher levels in the sport include Euan Thorburn, Garry Pearson, John MacCrone, Mark McCulloch and Blair Brown.
Today the championship is open to competitors in Citroen C2 1600cc cars, which run within regulations intended to keep costs down as much as possible while encouraging friendly rivalry and close competition.
More information including the championship regulations can be found on the Ecosse Challenge website.
