We are pleased to announce that the ‘Shop is OPEN’ for the 2023 Beatson’s Building Supplies Mull Rally merchandise.
Working with our Scottish partner, Caledonian Clothing, we have pulled together a range of garments to cover what we hope will meet all your needs. Plus, if you have any specific requirements then the team at Caledonian can do some ‘one offs’, but they will need some notice for this.
So if you need something for on the event, then pre order now, or maybe a stocking filler for Xmas – ahhh, not long away now!
Mull Rally Ferries – an update
We are aware that at present, the CalMac Ferries online timetable is only showing departures up to 15th October on the Craignure to Oban route.
The rally is in constant contact with CalMac, and there will definitely be ferries on that route on the 16 October and beyond, however, the new timetable publication is being delayed as they review vessel deployments.
We would expect a similar timetable to be instigated from the 16th, and as soon as we receive word of the dates becoming available to book, we will make a further announcement.
We have also been told that there will be two vessels on the Fishnish to Lochaline route for Sunday 15th and Monday 16th, and there will also be a new system in place to reduce queuing traffic. This route remains a great option, although, it is not bookable in advance.
We will bring you further updates as we receive them to help with your travel arrangements to and from the island in October.
Planning ahead! Mull 2024 date announced
Whilst preparations are underway for October’s 51st running of the legendary Beatson’s Building Supplies Mull Rally, organisers are now able to reveal that next year’s edition will take place on the 11-13 October 2024.
Announcing the following year’s date allows the island’s infrastructure, residents, fans, competitors, and volunteers to prepare well in advance. Thanks to the high demand to secure a place on the popular event Mull Car Club have once again unveiled the planned date well in advance to assist in these preparations for the challenging three-day blast across the closed roads of Mull.
During the early part of 2023, the organising team began a consultation to look at moving the now traditional mid-October date, back one week in a bid to take pressure away from accommodation and ferry providers, as well as better suiting landowners and estate facilitators.
However, factors including the issuing of the summer timetable for ferries, and the potential impact on other established events in the motorsport calendar, the decision was made to retain the traditional weekend that has been the mainstay of the rally for decades.
We look forward to seeing you in October and back on the island once again in 2024!
