1 Mins read

The ongoing discussion between Natural Resources Wales (NRW) and the MSA has come to an agreement that will see a new concept introduced to allow international and national rallying to continue through the forests of Wales.

Rally4Wales will provide a ‘self-repair’ team that will maintain the roads after each rally to make sure they are returned to an acceptable condition, this was previously a sticking point with NRW asking for more money to manage this themselves.

With the introduction of the self-repair team, the forestry fees are expected to remain the similar to the pre-2016 charges for at least the next three years.

Rob Jones, Chief Executive, said: “We are very pleased with the progress made. There are details and formalities to be agreed but the MSA is certainly optimistic.”

Jamie Edwards, founder of Rally4Wales, said: “This is an exciting, innovative new concept to sustainably underpin forestry stage rallying in Wales.”

Tim Jones, Executive Director Operations, North and Mid Wales for NRW, said: “There are still a few details to deal with, but we are optimistic that this innovative new approach will enable NRW to continue to host rallies into the future.”
