 About the Snowman Rally Event

 

The Snowman rally has been running for over 50 years. The first Snowman Rally event, organised by the Highland Car Club, took place back in 1955. Ever since it’s introduction, the Snowman rally has been a key feature in the Scottish rallying calendar. With many great UK names passing through and taking part in the highland event at one time or another during their career.

       

In the earlier years of the Snowman Rally, the event spanned across towards Elgin and huntly where it met with the border of the Granite City Rally (based in Aberdeen). More recently the Moray down of Elgin has played host to it’s own rally events. Formally known as the Speyside-Stages. This filled a patch between the Granite City Rally event and the Snowman Rally event. Leaving the Inverness based event to concentrate hosting special stages in the Highland forests.

One of the key attractions of the Snowman rally is in it’s name. Snow! Although in recent years, possibly thanks to global warming, snow hasn’t really played a part.. However with the early February date often pencilled in for the Snowman rally event snow was never far away and in fact has feature many times on the event.

These days we seem to get more rain than snow.. But don’t be fooled, the dampness makes for some very wet and slippery stages while the cold temperature presents and ever increasing risk of icy patches.  A true challenge for the first round of the Scottish Rally Championship.

The Modern snowman rally sees special stages surrounding the Highland capital of Inverness, Across to the black isle and right down past loch ness.  The fantastic scenery makes for a great backdrop to the rally event.

Snowman Rally events are often found on the 2nd Sunday of February each year. If you plan on going along to spectate at the event please remember to wrap up warm!

Organised by the Highland Car Club.
