Moray town gears up for annual car fun day

ROAD SAFETY AWARENESS for young drivers is once again taking centre stage at an annual event in Keith this weekend.

The annual ‘Rrrrallye’ event in the Moray town has been organised for several years in memory of Stuart Harper, who was killed when a car in which he was a passenger left the road and hit a tree in 2008.

This year will be the seventh time the Rrrrallye has been held at the Keith Community Sports and Leisure Centre. It will once again feature a collection of vehicles and motorbikes from different clubs and individuals from throughout the north east.

A spokeswoman said: “The Rrrrallye has become very popular over the years and this year we again have craft and information stalls in the hall along with teas and home-bakes.

“It is in memory of Stuart and we hope to promote road awareness for youths – but also to reach out to road users in the hope that we all take a look at our driving skills and try to be safer on the road.

“There will also be entertainment in a marquee while the day includes a 5k race. Emergency Services will be there to give advice on what to do if you are involved in an accident or come across one.

“All proceeds raised will be used to issue driving course vouchers to young people aged 17-25. We will also be able to fund Roadwise Driving Training for 14-17 year olds.”

The Rrrrallye takes place on Sunday from 10am until 4pm. Anyone who would like to book a stall at the event or wishes to display their vehicle is asked to contact the Rrrrallye team on or by calling Linda on 01542 887717 or Raymond on 07788 560308.
