BRC | RD5 – MULL RALLY 2021

For the first time since its inception back in 1958, the British Rally Championship arrived on the picturesque Isle of Mull for the fifth round of the 2021 season – The Beatson’s Building Supplies Mull Rally. With 17 stages covering 148 miles, this event was to be one of the longest and perhaps the most individual of events on the calendar this season and would be a challenging one at that. For an event that began life in 1969 as a club level road rally, it offered up an immense…

BRC | RD4 – TRACKROD RALLY YORKSHIRE 2021

Ask any British Rally Fan where “Gods Own Country” is in terms of a playground for rallying and you may receive a couple of different responses. Whilst some will note “Killer Kielder” Forest on the Scottish Borders, many will claim that Wales is the correct answer, but for every Welsh vote, you may well receive a vote in favour of Yorkshire. Now Yorkshire has ample history in the British Rallying Books and has played its parts in hosting the RAC rally and many National events over the decades. So it…

BRC | BTRDA | WNRC | RD1 | CAMBRIAN RALLY 2019

The Cambrian Rally has often been an event on our annual rallying calendar and this year’s edition, the 64th of the North Wales Car Club organised event came with the added attraction of being a part of the Motorsport UK British Rally Championship. Now, we have always favoured this event and followed it as part of BTRDA & Welsh National Series and some may well have had concerns about having these premier championships possibly colliding on the same event, but we have to say it worked, and my gosh did…

WRC | RD11 – WALES RALLY GB 2018

When one thinks of Rally GB and what makes this event so iconic to the FIA World Rally Championships the main thing that comes to mind is the conditions, the wet slippery and muddy surfaces that can be found in the stages of North and Mid Wales offers the perfect challenge for the World’s best drivers. Rally GB has always hovered around the end of the Rally season and some argue that the later on it in the year it is, the better, providing more chances in seeing these classic…

Saturday; Day 1 of the event was based on…
