Duns rally driver Dale Robertson didn’t have the best of years in 2013.

His Mitsubishi Lancer was burnt to a cinder in the Jim Clark Rally and he broke his leg playing rugby for Duns RFC.

Now recovered from his injury, and with a new car, Dale competed in the recent Christmas Stages Rally at Croft race circuit as a bit of a test prior to competing in this year’s MSA Scottish Rally Championships.

Despite a slow start due to the wrong tyre selection Dale fought his way up from 64th place after the first stage to finish a creditable 14th.
