Many of the UK’s most famous, challenging and popular forestry stages will once again come together to form the 2024 Motorsport UK Pirelli Welsh Rally Championship - which will begin in Powys on March 16th.

Next year will be the 13th consecutive year of title sponsorship from Pirelli, which has supported the series every year since 2012.

The Welsh Association of Motor Clubs organised series will contain seven rounds, with five of the best scores to count.

Next year’s series will begin with the Get Jerky Rally North Wales on Saturday, March 16th. 


Organised by Wolverhampton & South Staffs Car Club, this year’s event featured a fantastic start and finish ceremony in the centre of Welshpool, with stages in Dyfnant and Dyfi forest complex.

Round two will be the Rallynuts Severn Valley Stages on Saturday, April 13th.

Organised by Midland Manor Motor Club, the event will feature stages in Myherin, Sarnau, Sweet Lamb and Hafren forests and be based at the Royal Welsh Showground in Llanelwedd.

Next up will be a visit to Bala for the Plains Rally on Saturday, May 18th.

The sixth and penultimate round will be the Visit Conwy Cambrian Rally on Saturday, October 26th.

Based in Llandudno, the North Wales Car Club organised event brings competitors some of the very best former Wales Rally GB stages, including Clocaenog, Brenig and Alwen.

The seventh and final round will be the Wyedean Rally on Saturday, November 16th, organised by the Forest of Dean Motor Club.

“It’s fantastic to see at the start of my fifteenth year as Secretary of the Motorsport UK Pirelli Welsh Rally Championship some of the ideas planned for 2024 coming together so well,” says Dave Evison.

“Organisers are taking rallying to the people, with more town centre starts and ceremonial finishes planned. Whilst some events have moved their rally base in recent years, others are looking to do so with the aim to bring more stages on board, all of which is proving very popular with contenders.

“2024 will no doubt bring plenty of challenges and also plenty to celebrate. We hope our many loyal competitors will come and join us again for the ride and, along with we hope many newcomers, they will enjoy competing on some world class stages Wales has to offer.”
