UK not to host a WRC event in 2022

Great Britain will not host a WRC event this year while the organizers are trying to find a solution for a potential return of Rally GB to 2023 WRC calendar.

According to sources, the organizers could not find a proper place to host the Service Park, but the most important thing is that Motorsport UK rejected the plan for a WRC event in 2022 as it believed that the funding was unviable.

This year's WRC calendar is almost revealed apart from the ninth event which is yet to be confirmed.

The ninth round of 2022 World Rally Championship will be on August 18-21 and it was expected that Great Britain will be the host country.

The organizers of Rally Great Britain wanted to transfer their event from Wales to Nothern Ireland and this event would be a tarmac event.

"The focus absolutely is on bringing a WRC round to the UK in 2023", Bobby Willis told DirtFish.

"There are so many drivers in the UK and in Ireland who absolutely deserve it – not to mention all the organizers, marshals and fans out there.

"When we’ve got drivers like Craig Breen and Elfyn Evans, and a whole raft of younger drivers coming through from here, we need to give them a home round of the championship.

"We want to see and secure a future for the WRC in the UK".
