Gretna couple George Topp and his wife Rosalind have just completed their toughest motorsport challenge to date.

The rallying duo were the only Scots taking part in the tough 10-day 3,000 km London to Lisbon Rally, which began with a speed test on the banking of the historic Brooklands race circuit, the world's first purpose built race track. 

The couple, driving a 1966 Volvo Amazon 132S, finished the marathon four-country rally in 20th place overall, and third in class.

During the early stages of the rally, in England and France, the couple were as high as 14th overall, before dropping back when the rally reached the racetracks and mountain roads of Spain and Portugal, some as high as 3000 M.

This was the toughest rally so far for the couple, who only began historic endurance regularity rallying in 2022.  In January and February, they also tackled the famous Monte Carlo Historique Rally.
