The Rally2Raise team have secured a sponsorship deal which will see them compete in several Scottish Rally Championship (SRC) events this season. The team’s Nissan Micra car will be supported by E.Watson and Son, a groundwork contracting business based in Stonehaven.
After a very successful debut season in 2012 when £2,500 was raised for four charities the team are using rallying to support two causes this year, the Nystagmus Network and the Bottle Stop campaign.
The team of driver Rachel Clark, from Aberdeen, and co-driver Katherine Begg, from Heysham, will start their SRC programme with the Granite City rally on 20th April.
“After the unfortunate events of last year’s Granite City rally we were determined to enter again,” said Clark. “The generous support of E.Watson and Son has enabled us to do that. We’ve got an ambitious plan to do five SRC events this year and the sponsorship has meant we are much nearer to achieving our goal.”
“By competing on the events we will continue the good work we did last year in supporting charities, especially as the two causes for this year are not commonly known – we aim to change that.”
Brian Watson of E.Watson and Son commented: “We’re delighted to support Rally2Raise, the team did really well with their fundraising last year and we’re happy that we can help them progress the project in 2013.”
The girls will be dying their hair a Rally2Raise red colour for the Granite City rally so look out for them and their distinctive yellow and blue Micra on the event!
