Rallying with Holy Socks® sets out on its fifth season with Jock Armstrong and Kirsty Riddick when the pair contest the Arnold Clark Thistle Hotel Snowman Rally tomorrow (Saturday).

Seeded at number three for the opening round of the ARR Craib Scottish Rally Championship in Inverness. Jock and Kirsty won the event in the R Earsman Ltd Subaru Impreza in 2010.

Margaret Wyllie from the Newton Stewart-based company Holy Socks, said: “It’s certainly been an exciting four years – you just never know what’s going to happen in rallying. We’ve had last-minute wins and first-stage exits. Rallying with Jock and Kirsty is never dull and I hope Holy Socks® have added to the excitement and interest over the past few years.

“Last year Jock competed in three rounds and finished on the podium each time. His plans to compete in all eight rounds this year will keep me on my toes supplying them with fresh socks for each rally!

“Over the years, I think they’ve had every design of Holy Socks®, including the socks we’ve had specially designed for Lincoln Cathedral and St Giles in Edinburgh. We’ll see what we can come up with this year.”
