Rally Report 2013

For the first time in its 19 year history the Scottish All Rover Rally took place in the nation's capital, with the historic Lauriston Castle providing the venue for the Sunday gathering.

A road tour opened proceedings on Saturday 25 May, with around two dozen cars gathering at Ferrymuir Services at South Queensferry in glorious sunshine. They followed a route which took them along the south bank of the River Forth to Bo'ness, where morning coffee was taken in the refreshment room of the Bo'ness & Kinneil Railway. From Bo'ness the route took us past Grangemouth to Stirling, where a loop around the Wallace Monument marked the start of the return leg along the Fife coast through the Royal Burgh of Culross, notable for its memorial to Admiral of the Fleet Lord Thomas Cochrane, a man whose life story is often described as an inspiration for Horatio Hornblower and Jack Aubrey in the "Master & Commander" novels. A trip across the Forth Road Bridge completed the tour, and participants were then free to prepare for the evening dinner in Edinburgh's Capital Hotel.

The following day was the static element of the event, and from early morning cars started arriving at Lauriston Castle. With nearly 100 cars pre-Pentered the booking in team were soon busy handing out programmes and display cards and directing cars into their appropriate display areas.

The star attraction at this year's event turned out to be the oldest car entered, a 1906 Rover 6hp entered by Mr MacKenzie from Carlops. After a number of lean years the early car class showed a healthy increase in numbers with seven cars taking the field.

As this year was the 50th anniversary of the launch of the P6, it gave the The P6 Rover Owners Club an opportunity to put on a special display, with examples of early and later 4 cylinder and late V8 cars to compare. Rover P4 owners turned out a dozen cars, again ranging from a "Cyclops" to a late 110. Paul and Sarah Gregory used their "Cyclops" to good effect during Saturday's observation run and returned a perfect score!!

Not so many of the Rover 75 & MG ZT cars turned out this year, but the class did feature two Japanese spec 75s, both of which had been returned to the UK unsold. Aldo Ross's ZT260 displayed a customised front end, based on a Rowe with added foglamps, which caused a deal of comment.

This year's Rover P5 Club National Rally organiser, Alan James, was in attendance. He spent a great deal of time canvassing for entrants at Deene Park in September. Former SARR committee member Nick Terry showed his gorgeous red Maserati 4200GS; and long time SARR supporters Tim & Christine Moore came down from Skye, using their MG C GT instead of the 1947 Rover Export saloon which has been their usual mount most of the previous 19 SARRs.

Lauriston Castle itself started out as a tower house built for the Napier family at the close of the sixteenth century, and it was extended and remodelled during the 1800s. The grounds were laid out by William Henry Playfair in the 1840s. The Japanese Friendship Garden, gifted by the prefecture of Kyoto, was a tranquil place to take a picnic away from the cars and contemplate the superb views over the Forth. The castle's management laid on two special guided tours for rally entrants during the morning, in addition to the usual afternoon tours which were open to all.

During the afternoon the self judging votes were received and counted, and by 4 pm the class winners were assembled for the prize giving ceremony. The overall Rally Champion was Mr MacKenzie with his 1906 Rover 6hp, which also was voted "Entrant's Choice" and was, not surprisingly, the oldest Rover on show.
