110 cars set for Flying Scotsman Rally

Published 21 March 2016

A total of 110 competitors will take part in this year’s Flying Scotsman Rally next month. The event, which has a new starting point at Belvoir Castle, promises three days of motoring for pre-war vintage cars from Friday, 15 April.

The Endurance Rally Association’s event will journey through the Lincolnshire and Yorkshire Wolds, onwards north via Northumberland. It will take in some of Scotland’s finest Lochs and Glens before arriving at the splendid Gleneagles hotel.

The cars and crews will cover almost 700 miles from Leicestershire to Perth and Kinross with many off-road tests and challenges set along the route to supplement the on-road navigational and regularity sections.

This year is the 8th running of the event and, as usual, there's yet another full and stellar field of cars and competitors all hoping to take the honours in the UK's most demanding, reliability trial for vintage cars. Such is the calibre and prestige of the event that many crews from all over the world return year after year to do battle with their (friendly) rivals.

This year’s defending champion is William Medcalf, a two-times winner of the event and one of the original drivers from the first running in 2009. For more details including a list of spectator points and the latest updates, visit
