The Scottish Summer Hill Rally sponsored by Defender Rally Series


Defender Rally Series support the Scottish Summer Hill Rally

The Defender Rally Series, run by Bowler Motors, are proud to announce their support of the Scottish Summer Hill Rally 2024. The third round of the Series will be at the Scottish Summer Hill Rally, where their excited teams will race against up to 60 other competitive crews, taking to the hills of the Scottish Borders, in the ultimate test for drivers and cars.

The Defender Rally Series Partnered with Tata Elxsi showcases the Defender’s highly durable and reliable all-terrain capability in this highly challenging and competitive event. This is an ideal partnership to demonstrate what a production vehicle with specialist rally preparation can achieve in full-on cross-country conditions.

Calum McKechnie, General Manager at Bowler Motors, commented, “We are proud to continue to support the Scottish Summer Hill Rally event this year as the Defender Rally Series, reflecting its growth and exciting future ahead. Our renewed sponsorship of the Scottish Summer Hill Rally celebrates our commitment to supporting events that celebrate the spirit of unstoppable
adventure and partnerships in motorsport.” Based in the grounds of the historic Thirlestane Castle in Lauder, one of the oldest and finest inhabited castles in Scotland, the Scottish Summer Hill Rally will start on the Castle Esplanade at 1000 on Saturday 1 June, with the competitors travelling some 200 miles on and off road before finishing back at Thirlestane on Sunday afternoon.

Sponsorspip Opportunities

An event as large and complex as this cannot exist without the valued support of sponsors. We have stage and service park sponsorship opportunities. This year the event will see more media exposure as well as social media coverage. Our spectator stage will be enhanced too, with an improved viewing area.

With the stages agreed and the route planners working away, you can expect the SR’s to be published in a matter of weeks, so if you want your logo on the front cover as well as plastered over Muddy Moo, get in touch now!

2024 – A fantastic year for Hill Rallies!

Two Scottish Hill Rallies planned for 2024.

The SHRC team met for the first time this year. A six hour long and very productive meeting resulted in some brilliant plans. We have a great year of Hill Rallying ahead for you!

1st & 2nd June. The second Scottish Summer Hill Rally, featuring increased stage mileage and many other enhancements.
16th & 17th November. A completely refreshed and revitalised Borders Hill Rally.

We’re getting to work straight away on both of these events and are looking forward to providing the best cross country experience in the UK.
