The Flying Scotsman Rally 2014.



The Endurance Rally Association started the 6th Flying Scotsman rally this year from the West Midlands, from near to Birmingham airport before heading north to the finish in Scotland. The entry is for any pre-war car and a large field of vintage cars assembled for the start of the rally on Friday 4th April 2014 and were lead away by a 1912 7 litre Chalmers 10 (30) driven by Robert Abrey and Brad Webb. Although the car seemed to leave a cloud of thick smoke everywhere it went, the car would complete the 1000 kms run to win the Pioneer Overall award.


The main event for the Vintageant classes proved to be a victory for the Bentley Boys with William Medcalf and David Kirkham winning in their Bentley Super Sports 4 1/2 litre (23) with Paul Carter and John Bayliss finishing 2nd in a Bentley Derby 4 1/4 litre (91).

The class winners were 

Pre 41 up to 1500cc - Fred Gallagher and Neil Oatley in a Lancia Aprilia (38)

Pre 41 up to 2000cc - Jan Dingemans and Joost Dingemans in a BMW 328 (40)
