Jim Clark rally

Post by racechick »

I'm just hearing reports that the rally in the Scottish Borders has been cancelled with immediate effect because there's been a bad accident with spectators injured. I think it may have only happened recently so not many details. I'll see if I can find a link.

......this all I can find at the moment. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-27651504

It's is three now, and six injured. It was two separate accidents.
