Cambrian Rally


Spectator Maps and information will be made available closer to the time.

North Wales hosts the perfect setting for the Cambrian Rally, in particular Clocaenog and Alwen Forest in Denbighshire and Penmachno just outside Betws y Coed. Both locations were used extensively for the Lombard RAC Rally back in the early eighties.
