CONCERNS FOR BRITISH RALLY FANS AT PROSPECT OF NO DEAL WRC

NO RALLY GB IN 2021?

The latest that we are hearing is that even Northern Ireland has been unable to gain the approval for Government funding for a potential round of the 2021 FIA World Rally Championship in August.

In more recent years it has spanned across all three competition days, however this year in an attempt to reduce the cost a bit, it was reduced to a two-day event which featured 8 special stages and just under 60 stage…
