Rally Report 2012

The eighteenth annual Scottish All Rover Rally retained its traditional date in late May, and so benefited from the hottest weekend of the year, a welcome change after the cool and blustery weather we had in 2011. The site chosen for this year was The National Museum of Rural Life at East Kilbride, near Glasgow.

The rally started on the Saturday morning with about 20 cars setting off on what was intended to be a gentle 40 mile run across South Lanarkshire and Ayrshire, but a major traffic diversion threw the carefully planned route into confusion, with several entrants abandoning the task due to the hopeless diversion signage. Most did, however, manage to navigate through to the lunch stop at The Kings Arms in Fenwick. The afternoon return run took us across Eaglesham Moor, past the Whitelees Windfarm with its 140 hideous turbines.

The Holiday Inn at East Kilbride played host on the Saturday evening to a dinner for rally entrants, which was followed by another SARR tradition, the rally quiz. Kim Payne set and presented the quiz, which kept the grey cells churning over whilst dinner settled.

From early on Sunday the cars started arriving at the Museum, and our well oiled (with sun screen!) team soon had a total of 88 vehicles marshalled into the parking bays. As always there were some unusual cars on display this year, noteworthy among these was the long wheelbase Rover 75 brought along by Rain Potisepp from Tallinn, Estonia, which was resplendent in its Dark Fantasy Monogram paintwork. The other end of the age spectrum was represented by the oldest car on display, the 1937 Lanchester LA11 entered by John Lamb.

The hot weather made it a real pleasure to wander around the serried ranks of shiny Rovers, and soon the marshals were locked into Rally Control to count the votes for the self judged concours.

The various class winners' cars were then assessed by the expert panel of judges, and Barry Gill's 1968 2000 TC was pronounced the Rally Champion 2012. Entrant's Choice this year was Mark Telfer's P5B Coupé.
