The Autosave Components Kinloss Autumn and Winter Stages has received positive acclaim from competitors for excellent stages and thrilling competition aimed firmly at the grassroots competitor.
Organised by Condor Motor Sport Club, the club's aim has been to provide new top-quality venues for rallies and sprints in the future, and will offset 21,000Kg CO2e from this year’s events.
The event, run at Kinloss Barracks, was first run in 2021 and since then has received increasing recognition for its fantastic stages, which are relatively unique as they offer competitors high mileage smooth surface stages with no merges at a single venue.
Due to the nature of the venue and MOD restrictions, the event is non-spectator, however despite this the popular event serves up a great atmosphere for competitors from its central service location and provides a very compact day of rallying action. As a result, this year’s Autumnm Stages received an oversubscribed entry and rave reviews from competitors, with another strong entry for the Winter Stages run on November 18th.
The Autosave Components Kinloss Autumn and Winter Stages brought competitors from the Scottish, Back to Roots and North of England tarmac championships, as well as the Junior 1000 Ecosse Challenge.
Speaking after the rallies, Carbon Positive Motorsport founder Paul Glass said,"I think a huge well done is deserved by all the organisers and volunteers who have worked tirelessly to make the rally the success it has been. I’ve heard nothing but incredibly positive feedback from all the competitors involved.
"I’ve also been humbled by the commitment from the organisers and sponsors to our initiative and promoting the benefits so well – proving you can combine good value events with environmental responsibility. It's exactly what we hoped for, not just the use of carbon offsetting, but also using our services to help improve the sport's perception in the community, and for the benefit of the event sponsors, just as Autosave Components have done.
"Autosave have a unique position in all our hearts for the long-term support they have given over the years to events and competitors, something that’s widely known in the Scottish Motorsport Community. So, I’m personally happy that we can in a small way, give something back to them through our support to the event for the benefits of their own brand promotion."
