 2009 Event News

 Update: Thursday 12th February 2009 - 20:50 

Added a map of where the stages are along with the designated parking areas..

(Click for full map)

Also got word today that snow is very deep near the stages. Some places up to waist deep on the walk up to stages!!!! With a few more inches of snowfall again today that'll be even deeper..

Good news, is that there is no more snow forecast before the weekend.. Bad news is, there is rain forecast! Rememeber to dress accordingly!

Please take the greatest of care if you are travelling to the stages this weekend. The competitors are professionals.. Take it easy on the public roads please. We don't want any accidents!

 Update: Wednesday 4th February 2009 - 16:13 

I received further details of stages today.. Unfortuantely they differ from those I posted earlier. But are similar(ish) Stages 3 & 4 are slightly diffreent but the rest is more or less the same:

Updated Stage List:

SS1 - Meall Mor
SS2 - Milbuie (Black Isle)
SS3 - Torachilty
SS4 - Corrimony
SS5 - Glen Urquhart

Note I don't yet have 100% confirmation of the stages! But they probably wont be far off if they are diffferent to what's here..


Also I've added the current Entry List to the bottom of this page! (Jump to it)


If you know of some information before I do.. Let me know! So it can be shared with all the other spectators!

Details of the stages are starting to filter through to me!

SS1 - Daviot
SS2 - Milbuie (Black Isle)
SS3 - Garve
SS4 - Rogie
SS5 - Glen Urquhart ?

Hopefully I'll have additional details of times soon.. Servicing will take part at the Black Isle Show Ground..

Remember.. if you know of some information before I do.. Let me know! So it can be shared with all the other spectators!

 Update: Wednesday 28th January 2009 - 19:20 

Well it's that time again.. My doesn't it come round quick.. Doesn't seem that long ago since I was on the edge of one of the final corners ont eh final stage of the 2008 event nearly getting my toes chopped off by the leading pack of competitors! If you were standing anywhere near me last year you'll know what I mean.. Phew! Little too close...

Oh and incase you haven't noticed! The Snowman Rally this year lands on Valentines Day! So no reason to forget! And if you do... you'll be in BIG trouble

As always, I hope to get details of stages and start times up here as soon as I hear when they are! Also with a bit of luck the usual array of photos after the event!


I've got a few plans brewing for a revamp of this rally section of the website. I have my ideas but I'm keen to hear if you guys n' gals have any suggestions as to what sort of features/information you would like to see here..

Please feel free to get in touch with any suggestions.
