The “Rally UK”, which has been competing in the Welsh region since 2000, is likely to gain more opportunities in Northern Ireland next season as Wales gradually lose financial support.
“Why should we limit ourselves to a small area? Our goal is to travel all over the UK. “ David Richards, head of the Motor Sport Federation in the United Kingdom, commented in an interview with the BBC.
“We want to find a way so that the race changes in different areas every three years. “
In the provisional calendar for the 2021 season, the promoter of the WRC and FIA is clearly included in the United Kingdom, but without specifying the location of the event.
Northern Ireland has been interested in joining the WRC for months, and some like Nicki Grist think this change is a great idea.
“Northern Ireland has a promoter who has been running events for many years and they are holding good rallies there”, he said. Said former WRC co-driver Nicky Ghrist. ” They need the Northern Ireland government to pay. They will organize a quality event that will be good for them. “
