Jock ready for challenge

Defending ARR Craib Scottish Rally Champions Jock Armstrong and Paula Swinscoe got their title defence back on track after a disappointing Arnold Clark Jury’s Inn Snowman Rally, with victory on last month’s Brick & Steel Border Counties Rally.

But the team are ready for the next round of the championship, the Speyside Stages in Elgin on April 23.

“[The plan for the Speyside is] just like the last rally, quick out of the box and no mistakes like forgetting to put it in gear on the start line!” He said.

“We’re getting used to being the first car on the road. That leaves an advantage for the braking zones for the people behind you. Still we’re enjoying the challenge and publicity.”
