Welcome to the Visit Conwy Cambrian Rally, one of the oldest and most established rallies in the UK.
The 66th Cambrian Rally, is expected to be the first round of the season of the Motorsport UK British Rally Championship, BTRDA Rally Series, Pirelli Welsh Rally Championship, Independent Paint Supplies Rally Challenge and the ANWCC Championship and is set in the challenging welsh forests. These forests of North Wales are synonymous with rallying especially the Lombard RAC (now the WRGB) back in the late eighties, with legendary drivers such as Roger Clark, Colin McRae, and Richard Burns. In 2020 the Start/Finish was moved back to the Promenade, a spectator favourite, for the presentation of Awards benefiting from the stunning backdrop that is Llandudno Bay.
The Cambrian has been enjoyed by a number of top WRC drivers. In 2009 Mikko Hirvonen was the course car in his works WRC Ford Focus. In the same year Mads Ostberg took the overall win in a WRC Subaru. Mikko Hirvonen also won the Cambrian back in 2000, when he was just 20 years old, in his Subaru Impreza WRC . Andreas Mikkelsen won the Cambrian in 2006 when he was just 17years old!!
Now in it's 66th year (its been running since 1955!) the Cambrian is recognised as one of the best rallies in the UK. This was confirmed in 2008 and 2009 when it was crowned ‘Best Event’ by both the BTRDA and ANWCC. In 2014, again the Cambrian Rally won “Best Rally of 2014” awarded by the BTRDA.
