Mull Car Club tried to resurrect the Argyll Rally eight years ago and despite attracting quite a bit of interest, insufficient competing crews came forward to maintain the event without the support of a major championship.
Thanks to the perseverance of the club, the event blasted back onto the British rally calendar in 2017 with a new name, new challenge and classic stages. The Dunoon Presents Argyll Rally was re-born thanks to the invaluable support of the local folk and businesses.

This years’ event will move from the forests to closed public roads. It will be run over two days, Friday 25th and Saturday 26th June 2021, and will be based at Dunoon Stadium.
The event will consist of 13 stages on public road, with five stages on the Friday Night, and 8 stages on the Saturday. The first two stages on the Friday night will be around Dunoon Town Centre, with first car due at 18:30. The remaining 3 stages on Friday night will around the Cowal Peninsular.
