Every year from the middle of February, through to October, the peace of Scotland's tranquil forests is shattered by the roar of powerful rally cars as they tear through the forest tracks. Rally driving - a fast and dangerous sport, but also an exciting and addictive one, which is followed by many. Calum George Buchanan, from the Western Isles, lives and breathes it - it's in his blood. In a career spanning 16 years he's reached the very top of the sport in his chosen class.

We follow him through the season, as he travels the length and breadth of the country to prove his mettle once again. Having won his class last year the stakes are high!
