A MOTOR rally is forecast to provide a much needed boost for tourism businesses if Covid restrictions are eased to allow it to go ahead.

The Visit Conwy Cambrian Rally was originally scheduled to be held on February 20, but has been postponed to October 30 after organisers took the decision to reserve a new date to ensure its continued presence in three major championships.

It means the event has secured its position in the British Rally Championship, the British Trials and Rally Drivers Association Championship, and the Welsh Rally Championship, together with the Association of North Western Car Clubs Championship, ensuring that it could attract entrants from throughout Europe.
