The British Army Motorsport Association event hosted is by 154 (Scottish) Royal Logistic Corps with more than 70 teams competing over all competitions.

Major Donald Urquhart said: "It's about the driver and navigator working as a team, the driver reading the terrain and driving appropriately, getting the right gears, getting it in diff-lock low range.

Watch: Scottish 'car killer' rally lives up to its name as three Forces cars fail to finish.

"The navigator obviously reading them out, reading the aerial photograph, looking out for the marker boards but also looking out for hazards and warning the driver, so it's a real team effort."

The competition began on Saturday and teams completed more than 20 stages over the two days.
