Above: the Subaru Impreza which took Jock Armstrong and Paula Swinscoe to victory on the Armstrong Galloway Hills Rally, the final round of the MSA ARR Craib Scottish Rally Championship.
The win gave the crew their second Scottish Championship title. Congratulations to Jock and Paula.
Commiserations to Garry Pearson and co-driver Robbie Mitchell, who only had to finish third to take the Scottish title. Jock was leading the rally after stage five when the engine manifold broke and melted the rocker cover in Pearson's M-Sport Ford Fiesta R5.
The pair had had a good battle all year, but it was Armstrong's Subaru which finally came out on top.
Mike Faulkner and Peter Foy finished second and Mark McCulloch and Michael Hendry took third podium spot.
Thanks to all the organisers and competitors for a great day out.

Earsman Ltd. Rallying with Holy Socks 2016
The Coltel Grampian Stages
Second on the RSAC Scottish Rally in Dumfries.
Second spot at the MacDonald and Monroe Speyside Stages.
Jock and Paula took the second podium spot in Elgin to add to their points tally in the defence of their MSA ARR Craib Scottish Rally Championship.
The pair were first through the first of two Cooper Park stages but a spin on the second stage dropped them down the leader board.
A second place gives them good points for the overall Championship.
Border Counties win for Jock and Paula.
Jock Armstrong and Paula Swinscoe, brought the Earsman Subaru home in first place on the Brick and Steel Border Counties Rally on Saturday.
Never a rally that has been kind to Jock, it was a particular pleasure to see them piped up to the ceremonial finish beside Jedburgh Abbey.
I hope the Holy Celebration Socks gave them the extra inspiration that was needed on the day.
We've been planning a special pair of Holy Socks to celebrate Jock and Paula's ARR Craib MSA Scottish Rally Championship win in 2015 and they arrived on Friday.
I think Jock likes his Holy Celebration Socks. They definitely match the car.
Paula wastes no time in getting her socks on.
The socks were made by Turner & Sons in Derbyshire and thanks to them for all their hard work - and perseverance!
Not such a good start to the 2016 season.
Jock and Paula finished 15th. after a day of snow and punctures.
We hope for a better result on the Border Counties Rally which sets out from Jedburgh in March.
The 2016 ARR Craib MSA Scottish Rally Championship begins on February 20th in Inverness.
Last year's rally winners, Rallying with Holy Socks' Jock Armstrong and Paula Swinscoe will lead the field away in The Jurys Inn Arnold Clark Snowman Rally in the Earsman Subaru Impreza.
Jock and Paula are pictured outside the Jury's Inn last year and they'll set off from there as 2015 overall Scottish Rally Champions.
I'm told they have new race suits but have no information on the colour. Wonder if they're orange....................
"Well done, good and faithful servant." - Both of them.
