Junior 1000 Ecosse Challenge hits the Solway coast

On Saturday afternoon 5th August, Junior 1000 drivers and teams from all over the UK started arriving at Dundrennan MOD Base, Kirkcudbright in glorious sunshine for the 2017 usedcarparts Solway Coast Junior Rally. Everybody parked up in an area just outside the venue to allow the “senior” Saturday event to finish. Everybody gathered together in the service area hanger at 5pm for a briefing from Bill Sturrock of Scotmaps on the “special features” of the venue and the route notes that crews would be provided with. This event is unique in the annual Junior 1000 calendar as it is the only time that all UK Junior 1000 Championships get together and the only one where the crews are allowed to use organiser’s route notes. When Bill had finished and answered all the questions, we moved on to a Rally Forum. Unfortunately our “panel of experts” was reduced to 2 at this point due to a couple of people being involved in the running of the senior event. But we stormed ahead with Sam Bilham and Georgia Shiels on the subject - “Life after Junior 1000”. The “appreciative” audience stuck with us and we hope did get something out of the session – the minimum message being - “It is a big world out there and opportunities do exist if you grab them with both hands”

Guy Learmonth takes step back to move forward

For readers d’un certain age, the arrival of the Victor on the newsagent’s shelves of a Friday afternoon signalled the availability of the latest instalment in the unlikely life of athletics’ great working-class hero. Alf Tupper, otherwise known as “The Tough of the Track”, was the outlier made good, working as a welder by day but burning off his running rivals the night before by rewarding himself with a healthy helping of fish and chips rather than a refreshing power shake.
