Organisers of Wales Rally GB have extended its working relationship with Conwy County Borough Council, which sees the British round of the FIA World Rally Championship stay in Conwy for the foreseeable future.

Conwy County Borough Council has supported the Wales Rally GB since 2010 and will once again host the concluding round of the WRC in the forests of north and mid-Wales between 12-15th November.

Ben Taylor, managing director of Wales Rally GB, says without the support from the borough council the event wouldn't be the outstanding spectacle it has proven to become.

"The far-reaching and whole-hearted support Wales Rally GB receives from Conwy Council is a major factor in the event's recent success story," Taylor said. "Since the rally's move to a new base in north Wales, Conwy has been home to spectacular ceremonial starts and finishes while fans have flooded into its famous forests to catch the top class competitive action."

"We're delighted to be the host county again this year," Sasha Davies, strategic director for economy and place at Conwy County Borough Council said. "Wales Rally GB provides an excellent opportunity to showcase Conwy County around the world. The council has deliberately focused on events as a way of supporting the local community and the local economy - with an estimated return on investment of ?32 for every ?1 spent."

The full route for the final round of the 2015 World Rally Championship will be confirmed next month.
