A SPECIAL rally festival is to be held marking the 20th anniversary of late Lanark rally legend Colin McRae’s stunning world title win.

Knockhill Racing Circuit in Fife will be the venue on May 16 and 17 next year for an event featuring an invitational competitive rally in three classes.

Colin’s dad Jimmy said: “We are pleased to be working with Knockhill and its working group to put together this special event to mark Colin’s 20th anniversary.

“It seems only like yesterday that we all shared in his success.

“I believe that this event will relive his achievements and showcase rallying in Scotland at a great venue.

“I have competed recently at Knockhill and know it is a real test for the crews. All the show elements off track will be a real treat for rally fans too.”
