JIM CLARK RALLY, WE WANT OUR CLOSED ROAD RALLY BACK.
TO: LORD ADVOCATE OF SCOTLAND
We would like the Lord Advocate to bring his inquiry regarding the fatalities on the 2014 event to a conclusion.
Why is this important?
THE JIM CLARK RALLY 2017: RETURN TO CLOSED ROADS
The Jim Clark Rally generates approximately £3.5 million for the Scottish Borders economy each year and has substantial support from Scottish Borders Council, politicians and the general public.
Following the fatal accident in 2014 the JCR has been unable to run on closed public roads due to an inquiry being carried out by the Lord Advocate of Scotland.
It is in the public interest that the rally return to running on closed public roads in 2017.
Two years with no conclusion has made it difficult to guarantee the future of one of the UK’s biggest sporting events.
