The GWF Energy Merrick Stages
Rallying is Coming Home
• “The Galloway Forest stages are real drivers’ stages, very fast and requiring a big commitment. They can be challenging, but also very rewarding – so long as you keep the car in the middle of the road.” - David Bogie
•“ The Merrick stages are some of the best in the country with fast flowing roads.......Glentrool is one of the great challenges of the championship season". - Mike Faulkner
• Compact Route including approximately 44 stage miles with Central Servicing
• The penultimate round of the 2014 ARR CRAIB MSA Scottish Rally Championship, based in south west Scotland, and readily accessible from the A75 Gretna – Stranraer Euro-route
Scotland welcomes the world to join in the exciting Year of Homecoming 2014 and this year’s GWF Energy Merrick Stages will return to Wigtown – Scotland's National Book Town – on Saturday September 6th for the fifth consecutive year.
The rally enjoys the valued support of Dumfries and Galloway Council, and we look forward to welcoming competitors, spectators and officials to the area, which takes in some of the most dramatic scenery in the south of Scotland.
Galloway and Glentrool Forests are at the centre of a compact route, comprising classic fast and flowing stages, which have in the past witnessed many championship battles.
Documentation, scrutineering and the prize giving will be based at the county buildings in Wigtown while the Glencaird central service area is located adjacent to the Glentrool stages.
