Kicking off their 2015 campaign this weekend on the Snowman Rally - Round 1 of the Scottish Rally Championship, the all Morayshire based RAF Spookworks Rally Team cautious about how the 44 miles of tough gravel stages will play out for them. Their first outing on gravel since 2013 and the first attempt at the Snowman it is a big ask to suggest anything spectacular will arise against such odds.
Spookworks also find itself participating as part of the Scottish Rally Championship and hopes, if some support can be found to compete in all 8 rounds of the high profile series.

The Spookworks team director stated: "Its clearly a big ask and without any understatement just getting to the end will be a significant achievement. Its only 44 miles but its fast, slippy and unforgiving. If you come off line you will probably need the boys on 202 Sqn Search and Rescue to find us. The competition is a mix of experienced local competitors and serious national teams so the difficulty rating is simply off the scale. We have a history of upsetting the big boys but this might be a fairytale too far on this occasion. If we finish we will be breaking open the champagne. Anything other than that is just not comprehensible.".
