Run on the old airfield between Duns and Greenlaw, the Charterhall Stages Rally is one of the best spectator viewing rallies in Scotland. Entry fee for spectators is 5 per car.

Last year's winner Gavin Ruler heads the entry list in his Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 3 ahead of the Subaru Imprezas of Bob Grant and Ian Paterson.
