Hoy to join champion driver at rally

Have your say

OLYMPIC hero Sir Chris Hoy is swapping pedal power for horsepower to take part in a car rally.

The Edinburgh Freeman will participate in the Colin McRae Forest Stages Rally in 
Aberfeldy next month.

He will join Jim McRae – who like his late son Colin was a champion driver – in the safety car during the penultimate round of the ARR Craib Scottish Rally Championship on October 5.

Jim revealed the six-time Olympic gold medallist jumped at the chance to get involved in the rally.

He said: “We’ll both have to keep our wits about us, and it will give Sir Chris another insight into our sport. He’s looking forward to it.”
