About the Championship
Rallying for 14 to 17 year olds!
Junior 1000 rallying in the UK was started by the Formula 1000 Rally Club in 2009, with championships being introduced in Scotland and Ireland in 2012.
In Scotland, the Championship was taken on by the Ecosse Challenge and the first event at Charterhall in March 2012 attracted 10 crews. Key to the launch of the championship and leading the organising team at the start was David Barlow, aka DIGB, who in 2015 was made Motor Sports Association Volunteer of the Year and was further recognised in 2016 by the world governing body, the FIA.
Many competitors have gone on to be active in the senior Scottish rally championships and in the British Rally Championship. Some have changed motorsport discipline and taken part in Rallycross and Circuit Racing.
We welcome competitors from all over Britain, Northern Ireland and Eire. Our competition calendar varies annually but most events are in Scotland, usually with some in Wales and Northern England where we join with competitors in the Junior 1000 Rally Championship.
