Going into the Jim Clark Memorial Reiver’s Rally, the Earsman/Holy Socks rally crew of Jock Armstrong and Paula Swinscoe are well placed in the ARR Craib MSA Scottish Rally Championship.

A win on the Snowman Rally, the first event of the season, and a second place amongst the Championship runners on the Granite City Rally outweigh the disappointing non-finish on the Border Counties Rally.

The pair are looking forward to the Kelso-based Reiver’s Rally which will comprise five stages in the Kielder Forest.

Said Margaret Wyllie of Holy Socks, Newton Stewart: “It’s been an up and down season but we’re hoping to keep it on the up at what is the mid point of the championship. I hope the socks they’re getting this weekend will give them a bit of inspiration.”
