June 2015 wallpaper

OK so we are just like Shaun Sinclair, operating on Rally Barbados time at the moment so hence the June calendar being a wee bit late in going up. How are preparations for October coming on? All on track? The regs are heading down to Colnbrook shortly for approval before going onto the site next month.

Thank you all

THANK YOU ALL!

Louise Thomas, Melanie Whittaker and Marie Curie would like to say a very Big Thank You to Mull Rally and all competitors, officials, marshals, radio crews, Rescue/Recovery Crews and spectators. What a fantastic amount we all raised together,£2610.53 this will help provide vital end of life nursing care to local patient and their family’s.

This money will really help to make a difference, but what is making a difference is the awareness of the service, If people don’t know the service is here on Mull and Iona for terminally ill patients and their loved ones how can they use it? Well because of all the attention, Support and amazing encouragement we received it is making a difference. Thank You All.

Rally Forum

Forum

When was the last time that John Fife couldn’t host the pre-rally forum on the Thursday night? We can’t remember either. Unfortunately John was away at a new van launch with Mercedes Benz in Spain and couldn’t get to the island until the Friday lunchtime. It wasn’t even glorious weather – it rained.

The only person who could replace such a host could only be WRC Live’s, Colin Clark.

Forum 1

Colin took to the stage, without a hint of pink in sight, with guests Jim McRae, Ian Grindrod, Nick & Kelly Mathew, Stuart Loudon and Iain Campbell. But then the surprise guests were also World Rally Championship drivers; Elfyn Evans, Mikko Hirvonen and Haden Paddon.

You can listen to the full Forum by downloading the recording here. Where else can you find out about why Ian Grindrod calls Mull ‘The Best Rally in the World’ and also get to hear Elfyn Evans sing the theme tune to ‘Balamory’?

Host – WRC Live commentator, Colin Clark
Jim McRae – 5 times British Rally Champion
Ian Grindrod – 3 times British Rally Champion sitting beside Jim. Man who christened Mull The best Rally in the World
Elfyn Evans – M-Sport World Rally Team driver
Mikko Hiroven – M-Sport World Rally Team driver
Hadon Paddon – Hyundai Shell N World Rally Team driver
Nick & Kelly Mathew – 2BritsRacing, Canadian entry
Iain Campbell – Clerk of the Course
Stuart Loudon – Tunnock’s World Rally Team & co-driver to John MacCrone
