Hill Rally – 19th & 20th November 2016

Following the success of the 2015 Scottish Borders Hill Rally the Organising Committee and the Scottish Hill Rally Club (SHR Club Ltd) are delighted to be able to welcome you back to the 2016 event. This year’s event is once again the final round of both the Hill Rally Championship, and the Defender Challenge by Bowler Motorsport, and we are delighted to be able to welcome competitors from both championships to Southern Scotland.

Set in the picturesque area around St. John’s Town of Dalry, in Dumfries and Galloway, we are very fortunate to have been invited back to our regular venue at Forrest Estate. This private forestry site provides for fast graded Cat A routes, with something a bit more challenging along the way.

New for 2016 we will be splitting the night stage and replacing it with two slightly shorter stages to help with the smooth and safe running after dark. We are also planning to start earlier on Saturday, and a little later on Sunday morning. This will help us get the marshals in at a civilised hour, and provide you with a similar length of event, whilst keeping the Awards ceremony at approximately the same time on the Sunday.

The event remains at National B – so a Clubman Licence is the minimum required, with a wide tyre choice – provided they are listed in the All Terrain or Mud Terrain lists in the Blue Book. The entry fee of £450 is discounted for early entries and to recognise our commitment to attract new competitors into Hill Rallying we are continuing our discount for novice crews. There will be no public highway sections this year, so no requirement for road tax or MOT.

Following the popularity of last year’s event we will continue with the slightly larger maximum entry of 50 – the absolute maximum we can fit into the central service area. The same high quality results and local catering services are already booked.

Service will be very compact so we are asking you to tell us about your service vehicles, any fellow competitors they are sharing with etc on the entry form so that we can arrange the parking in service in advance.

The Supplementary Regulations are available for download, and the online entry form will be available from the 1st of August.


Results for the 2015 event are available from North East Results Service, with a rich variety of information (top 10 stage times, top speeds, etc)

The hour-long video of the event, produced by AJK TV, and sponsored by BritPart, is available on-line:
