THE original date set out for the popular Visit Conwy Cambrian rally event for 2021 has been postponed.

Despite putting in months of hard work in preparation for next year's event, the organising team has taken the decision to change the date.

Meeting virtually, the team from North Wales Car Club, had been putting in place a Covid-19 compliant rally scheduled for February 20, but in light of the ongoing situation regarding the pandemic, this date has now been moved to October 30.

Event organisers said: “Over the past few months the organising team of the Cambrian Rally have been working tirelessly in planning to put the event on in February 2021,while at the same time ensuring it would be Covid compliant, with organisers, competitors, marshals, and residents en route being kept as safe as possible. In this, we have been ably supported by Conwy Borough Council, the Welsh Government, Motorsport UK, and Natural Resources Wales, and we thank them all. Our thanks also go to Coleg Llandrillo for the promised use of their premises.

“We have had tremendous support from all the championships that the Cambrian is a round of in 2021 and we are very grateful for this. The route has been completed and would have offered a tremendous challenge to all competitors who we hope will support the rescheduled date.

“The event will still remain a round of the British Rally Championship, the British Trials and Rally Drivers’ Championship, the Welsh Association of Motor Clubs, ANWCC, and FMP championships, and as in previous years will be based in Llandudno with all the stages located in Conwy county."
