Mull Rally 2017
Statement on 2017 Mull Rally by the organisers on :
“It is a matter of considerable regret for the organisers and the Motor Sport Association, the sport’s governing body, that the Beatson’s Building Supplies Mull Rally cannot run as a closed road event in 2017 due to insurmountable insurance issues… The organising team is endeavouring to put on an alternative motorsport event for the same weekend on Mull. Naturally those plans are at a very early stage of development, but it’s hoped the new event will be attractive to Mull residents, competitors, volunteers and spectators alike… It is hoped that… the Scottish Government will quickly adopt the new legislation recently passed in Westminster which will allow the Mull Rally to make a return in its closed road format in 2018.”
Visit the Mull Rally site for the full statement.
Friday 13th to Sunday 15th October 2017 would have marked the 48th running of this competitive, closed public road car rally, where hundreds of visitors attend as competitors, marshals, officials and spectators. Based in Tobermory and taking place over over two nights and an afternoon around single track roads on the Isle of Mull, the stages cover over 150 miles. This is one of only two events in the UK where roads are closed to allow rallying over them.
