The following 3 sections took in the ford at Fortnightly which is possibly the only “wet” ford left on a public road in the area and then from there onto the challenging Drynachan and Lochindorb roads which are firm favourites with the drivers. Unfortunately these sections had to be scrubbed from the results due to a timing error. The rally then restarted on the B9007 heading for Ferness with the crews taking in a short loop around Dulsie and then heading to Relugas and back towards Forres and then on to Rafford before heading to Califer to the Finish. At the end the Neil Campbell and Charlie Munro were victorious with 25 penalties from Michael Law and Diane Duffton who finished with 27 penalties.
