+ Revised stage route for Monday’s leg
+ Elite sporting event status to help overseas crews
+ Capacity entry with reserves

The route for the final day of the 2021 Roger Albert Clark Rally (25-29 November) has been amended and will now take in two 10-mile stages in Crychan, two seven-mile stages in Walters Arena and a new three-mile stage.

While the rest of the route remains unchanged, including Sunday’s stages in the Dolgellau area of Wales, the route for Monday has been re-worked due to the unavailability of the planned gravel stages on the military land on Epynt.

Instead, the event will re-start on Monday morning (29 November) from Walters Arena and head straight into a seven-mile stage. The new three-mile stage, as yet un-named, will come next before a 10-mile stage in Crychan. The cars will then return to Walters Arena for service and a second seven-mile stage before a second run through Crychan. The rally will the finish, as planned, in Carmarthen at around 3pm and the overall competitive route will be 340 stage miles.

Rally manager Colin Heppenstall said: “Unfortunately, due to military activities we’ve had to move away from most of the Epynt stages. We’d like to thank the Ministry of Defence for their work and we look forward to going back to those stages in the future. It was then a challenge to secure other forests that did not have significant forestry work being done. However, I’m pleased with the solution we have found and Crychan is in fantastic condition thanks to the great work done by Rally4Wales.”

Meanwhile, the rally has been granted status as an ‘Elite Sporting Event’, which should make it easier for competitors from mainland Europe to attend. More details about how COVID arrangements will be handled will be supplied to visiting crews in the coming weeks.

The entry list remains full at 150 cars with 29 reserves currently waiting for any places that may become available.
