Fifty-four cars will line up for the Chris Kelly Memorial Stage Rally, which starts in St John's this evening (Friday).
Nineteen visiting drivers have travelled to the Island for the event, and first away will be Stockport's Dave Patterson and his co-driver Andy Marchbank.
They will be followed by the first of the local challengers, with Steven Quine and Richard Skinner second away in a Mitsubishi Evo 6.
There are six stages tonight, with two runs through Slieau Whallian, St Mark's and Balladoole.
The event will continue at Jurby from 9.38am on Saturday.
