The event made a welcome return to Duns in the Scottish Borders with three days of top-level rallying.

An array of drivers from across Europe and the UK took part in both the Jim Clark Rally and Reivers Rally, with around 240 crews tackling the closed public roads in Berwickshire.

Friday and Saturday’s Jim Clark Rally served up round two of Britain’s premier rally series, the Motorsport UK British Rally Championship [BRC] as well as the Protyre National Asphalt Rally Championship and several regional championships.

Taking third place in the event was Elgin co-driver Neil Shanks with driver Stephen Simpson.

The attention turned to the Reivers Rally on Sunday with Scottish Rally Championship points up for grabs.

Three Moray competitors were bidding for a high placing including Elgin co-driver Daniel Forsyth navigating for Muir of Ord driver Scott Macbeth in an Evo 9.

The crew secured their third top ten finish of the season, finishing as fourth registered crew in the rally and ninth overall.

Aberlour co-driver Michael Hendry also did Elgin's 63 Car Club proud, finishing third in the rankings alongside Dumfries driver Mark McCulloch.

And just behind in tenth overall and fifth in the SRC rankings was Huntly driver John Wink with Shanks in the navigator's seat, again for 63 Car Club.

Euan Thorburn did enough to keep series leader David Bogie at bay in the afternoon loop taking a superb win on his home event, adding to his 2012 victory on the rally.

Bogie’s result would also give him maximum points in the Scottish Rally Championship.
