GTG Training – a top quality training and conference centre owned by Arnold Clark – was proud to welcome the Monte Carlo Rally cars to its workshop in Glasgow for the fourth year running.
There were 25 cars at GTG, all of which were scrutineered and documented before they left for Paisley where the race began on 28th January. Scrutineering involves carrying out checks to ensure compliance with rally regulations and carrying out accident investigations to ensure the safety of all cars.
The cars were brought to GTG Glasgow at 10:30am to be serviced and registered before setting off to compete in the 104th Monte Carlo Classic Rally.
Paisley was the starting point for the rally, and the cars were driven there following satisfactory inspection at GTG, ready for setting off at 7pm.
Ian Taylor, Operations Manager at GTG Training said: “We are delighted to welcome back Monte Carlo drivers from all over the world. Now in our fourth year with the rally, the fantastic facilities at GTG continue to play an important role in making the rally such a great success year after year.
Last year, over 10,000 people attended the event in Paisley, and this year the town was packed with fans once again. Des and Jenny from Capital FM hosted the event and got everyone in the mood for the start of the rally.
Not all of the cars leaving from Paisley will end up in Monaco, as some drivers are making the journey to Luss instead from the same starting point. One of these drivers is Arnold Clark employee, Scott Fanning, who is taking his own Hillman Imp to Luss.
The fantastic classic cars are now well on their 1600-mile road trip to Monaco.
