A testing time in the wet

Saltire Targa 2015 Report

2014 winners Ross Butterworth/Ali Proctor successfully defended the Saltire Classic Rally, going fastest over the 16 special tests to secure a hard-fought victory over fellow Escort crew John Bertram/Andrew Fish. Lying snow through Errochty Forest would see a number of cars slide off, resulting in the section just before lunch halt being scrubbed, and the cancellation of the subsequent intended pass. Stephen Hudson/Richard Crozier dropped least time over the remaining two regularity sections to complete the podium.
