Well dunno about anyone else, but I had a great day out! One of the best rally events I've been to so far! Nice weather great company, in the form of a few members of the Subaru Impreza Drivers Club. And a well organised event this year! (Unlike the speyisde-stages last year... hint.. hint... ) Couple nice spins, slides and a roll right infront of where we were standing. Great day!.. Oh and just to correct the lady who was staring at my car thinking it belonged to Colin McRae,, Sadly it belongs to me... If it ever was Colin McRaes car you can be sure I'd have it safely locked away in a sealed, heated, air-conditions garage... But thanks anyway

Anyway as always I'll sort out the photos I took at the event. and hopefully get them posted up by the end of the weekend.. Some really nice shots this year.. My photography skills seem to be improving!

Please bookmark this page and check back soon when I have the new photo galleries in place!!

 

By the way.. if you want to give me any comments/feedback about this website or make a suggestion on how I can make the website better for spectators please get in touch! I'd like to do what I can to make things better for you! and I won't know how to do that unless you tell me what you'd like to see!

Thanks,

Ok sorry about the slightly inaccurate info yesterday on the stages, but I received my Snowman Rally programme today and it appears stage 2 is non-spectator due to the dodgy roads in the area .Unsuitable for lots of spectator cars.. The rest of the stages are more or less the same, stage 4 is across the road from where I thought it was but still in the same area.

Click for larger map

Sorry about the poorish quality map but the licence to publish proper Ordinance Survey maps on the net is more than I can afford..

Stage Times:

  Stage Start Time Location
  Start 9:30 Thistle Hotel Inverness
  1 10:37 By Tain (Morangie Forest)
  2 Non Spectator Stage Non Spectator Stage
  3 12:51 Couple miles north of Lairg
  4 13:05 Couple extra miles north Stage 3
  5 15:02 By Tain (Morangie Forest)
  Finish 16:10 Thistle Hotel Inverness

Note to Impreza owners.. If you have a standard alarm and are planning on going near The Thistle Hotel make sure you know your pin codes.. The big antenna on the roof jamms the key fob.. (as I discovered last year *sigh*)

 

Thanks,

Finally I've got some locations for stages.. But still no schedule for the day so don't know what the start times are:

As suspected the stages are further north this year, located around Tain, Bonar Bridge and Lairg. Stages 1 & 5 will take place in the same forest by Tain, (in case it isn't clear from the map). Ok the map blow isn't highly detailed but the locations of stages is accurate..

MAP Removed! Information was not 100% accurate..
Please check back later tonight for real information on the stages.

... Don't worry it's not dramatically different although stage 2 is a non spectator stage

 
Please check back soon for when I get stage times... Or if you hear before I do, let me know!

Thanks,

Just one week to go before the Snowman Rally 2008!

Sorry about the lack of updates for this years event, details have been difficult to get a hold of.

However, I have got reliable information about the general location of the stages. No official stage details have been released by the organisers yet, however I have strong reason to believe that 4 out of the 5 stages being run this year will take place north of Inverness. Particularly around the Bonar Bridge area. This should give spectators a chance to plan their day by at least knowing the general area where the days events will take place.

Unfortunately I cannot give out any further information as this time as the organisers will probably have my head on a platter. However official programme's for the Snowman Rally 2008 will be available from the usual outlets from Monday 11th February. As soon as I get a copy myself I will confirm the stages. If you are interested in going along to the stages to spectate please buy yourself a copy of the official programme to take with you and support the event.

Download the entry list. Or view in your web browser.

Thankyou,

Happy New Year all!

That can only mean one thing! The Snowman rally is not too far away.. This year the event is scheduled for Saturday 16th February once again hosted by the Highland car club and based in and around the Highland capital of Inverness.

A request.. I promise to spend more time making this site better this year so please get in touch with any feedback or suggestions of information/features/changes you would like to see here!

Thanks,
