Bogie Takes Home Win Using DMACK In Scotland

Bogie Takes Home Win Using DMACK In Scotland

• DMACK competitors take 1-2 victory on RSAC Scottish Rally.
• Drivers on DMACK win all 10 stages and unbeaten since last year’s event.
• Victory in Junior BRC and National Rally Cup.
• Six DMACK drivers finish in top-ten.

DMACK continued its unbeaten run of seven overall wins in the MSA British Rally Championship after Dumfries driver David Bogie and co-driver Kevin Rae took a popular home victory on the RSAC Scottish Rally today – their first BRC win since 2011.

Piloting his CA1-Sport prepared Skoda Fabia R5, Bogie came out on top by 48.5 seconds after a final stage drama saw rally leader, and team-mate, Fredrik Ahlin retire with a damaged radiator. Second was Osian Pryce in a Ford Fiesta R5, with Keith Cronin fourth – both using DMACK DMG+22 gravel tyres in GS63 soft and GH43 medium compounds.

Early rally leader Tom Cave, in a DMACK-equipped Hyundai i20 R5, ripped a wheel off on the first stage this morning leaving championship leader Ahlin to move ahead by nine seconds. The Swede, who won both the opening two rallies so far this season, was hunted down by Bogie on home turf and after stage seven through Twiglees forest, the gap was done to one second.

Bogie then edged into the lead by just 0.1 seconds, setting up a final test duel through the second pass of Windy Hill. But Ahlin collided with a rock, damaged his radiator and was forced to retire in the stage. That left Bogie to take DMACK’s seventh consecutive win in the British series – unbeaten since the Scottish Rally in 2016.

In the Junior BRC for the nation’s top young stars, Cameron Davies took a dominant win after finishing over a minute clear of his closest rival.

And Scot Donnie MacDonald won the National Rally Cup in his Ford Fiesta R5 – making it overall honours in three different categories for DMACK drivers.

Dick Cormack, DMACK managing director, said: “Once again it’s been another dominant event for DMACK competitors across all classes. David and Kevin really deserve this win and their CA1-Sport team have a third consecutive victory. But I’m also impressed with the performances from Cameron and Donnie on what was a very tough event.”

David Bogie, Scottish Rally winner, said: “We’ve been knocking on the door for the last three events and I’ve been desperate for a victory – so it’s great to actually do it on my home rally. The stages were tricky, very rough in places but the DMACK tyres have worked great all weekend. The last stage was all or nothing, we just pushed as much as possible.”
