Rally2Raise charity team set for Snowman rally

The all-female Rally2Raise team will continue their charity funds and awareness raising venture this month when they attend the Arnold Clark/Thistle Hotel Snowman rally, the opening round of the Scottish Rally Championship, on 18th February.

The organisers of the Inverness-based event, Highland Car Club, are supporting the project by allowing the Rally2Raise Nissan Micra to run ahead of the competitors on one of the rally’s stages as well as giving space at the signing-on venue for the team to promote their four causes: the Nystagmus Network, the Joanne Bingley Memorial Foundation for post-natal depression, Cancer Research UK and the MS Society.

The event will be the first time that project founder Rachel Medich has driven on a rally – she is usually to be found in the co-driver’s seat. Marieanne Gray will be on co-driving duty with Rachel on the Snowman.

“I am delighted that the Snowman rally organisers are helping us to promote Rally2Raise,” commented Rachel. “It’s going to be a daunting challenge driving a rally car in the woods for the first time but hopefully it will all go well and we’ll make more people aware of the charities that we are supporting.”

“This will be the first of a few events we will be part of in 2012 so keep an eye out for our little yellow and blue Micra on the stages!”
