Not only will the event be the sixth round of the SRC, but it will also be the will be the penultimate scoring round of the Ecosse Challenge, a dedicated one-make contest for the popular 
Citroen C2.

Weston said: “With some of the best stages in Scotland available to us, we simply had to ensure competitors could enjoy the Kincardine and Deeside Forests in 2016 and together with our fantastic organising team, have devised the Coltel Grampian Stages which will be a great addition to the SRC and Ecosse Challenge calendar.”

“With features such as a spectator super special stage and a cost effective format, we hope to attract a quality entry to Aberdeen next summer and we are looking forward to creating a popular event for both competitors and spectators alike” he said.
