This is Fantastic news for our WRC Event.

Wales has been the Financial supporter of this event since about 1998 if I recall, in fact I think I did the very last Network Q RAC back in 1997 before it became Wales Rally GB the following year. Obviously due to the Welsh Government funding our Nations event it has had to remain completely inside of Wales, but thanks to Welsh Government funding we did not lose our much loved Rally and now its health and existence is guaranteed for another two years.

Also it would seem the Welsh Government are Really starting to realise the potential in Motorsport as a Business, encouraging the development of Motorport Business throughout Wales, even heavily investing in an all new circuit in Ebbw Vale where the Valley Town has always struggled since the Pits were all closed down and the Town basically died along with it.

Wales needs Good things like Business Development to put it and keep it on the Map
