JET’s Cot House Services at the heart of the rally action
JET’s Cot House Services in Dunoon was right at the heart of the action on Saturday (24th June) when it welcomed around 70 rally drivers and their cars on the ‘Dunoon Presents Argyll Rally’, the fifth round of the ARR Craib MSA Scottish Rally Championship.
As the JET forecourt sells super unleaded fuel and is within the rally’s liaison route, organisers had briefed participating drivers to make the JET forecourt a pitstop to refuel in between the six stages of the day’s racing.
The rally, which returned to Dunoon for the first time in 14 years, is organised by Mull Car Club and supported by Dunoon Presents, the local Business Improvement District (BID).
With a tight schedule to stick to, JET Cot House Services was ‘geared up’ to welcome the 70 drivers as they refueled following stage 2 and 4 of the race. Staff worked flat out and pumps were non-stop, ensuring the drivers could fill up and get back on the road in as short a time possible.
Alastair Murray, owner of JET Cot House Services, comments: “It was very exciting to see the cars pull up onto the forecourt one by one. With just a minute lag time between each competitor, it was a hectic couple of hours, but we were delighted to be part of the action! The organisers told me that it’s a long and arduous route through the surrounding forests, so competitors were relieved to make use of our filling station!”
