Jimmy Jack is facing a race against time to make it home from Angola to compete in the 2020 Snowman Rally.
The subsea engineer is scheduled to arrive at Inverness Airport two hours before the scrutineering session starts for the rally event.
The four hour scrutineering session, rules if cars are eligible to take part in the race which is the first event of the Scottish Rally Championship.
Jimmy (47) is set to be driving in the event for the sixth time, with his brother John (21) who will be his co-driver in their Subaru Impreza.
He was due to take part in the rally last year, but it was cancelled due to severe ice on the course.
The Conon Bridge driver is desperate not to miss out on competing in the event.
“I am due to land at Inverness Airport at 12;45pm on Friday, a full two hours before scrutineering opens.
“One delay and I miss the rally.”
