As we edge closer to the crowning of all the 2021 British Champions across the vast spectrum of motorsport disciples, here’s a look at two rally events taking place in the UK this weekend. 

British Rally Championship – Round 6, Visit Conwy Cambrian Rally 

The Motorsport UK British Rally Championship returns to the legendary north Wales forests this weekend as the iconic Cambrian Rally plays host to the penultimate round of the 2021 season. The one-day gravel blast offers over 40 miles of world-class stages, including Gwydyr and Penmachno. Based at the seaside town of Llandudno, the event will also provide an additional challenge of a brand new closed-road asphalt stage to test the impressive BRC line-up to the limit.

After a searing season of action on the stages, the fight for the three BRC categories is set to reach an essential phase as dropped scores begin to affect the title race.

As the Welsh Rally Championship heads into its penultimate round, just two points separate the top three drivers, with Gerry Pearson, Ian Bainbridge and George Lepley ready to battle it out. Pearson sits at the top of the standings alongside co-driver Niall Burns after a successful run at the Woodpecker Rally. 

Will Pearson and Burns advance their lead in the standings ahead of the championship’s final round, or can Lepley and Bainbridge close the gap and be in contention for the championship win? Get all the latest updates from the rally here.
