The 2021 Championship will consist of eight rounds many featuring some of the best stages Wales has to offer. The calendar will see some changes from previous years, with the best six scores to count, the series will begin in April whilst the last round takes place in late October as event organisers work around the challenges enforced by the pandemic.

The championship then moves to South Wales for the third round The Red Kite Stages on the 13th June, before travelling to Dolgellau, North Wales for Round 4 Rally North Wales on the 26th June.
As the championship moves into the second half of the season its back to Mid Wales for the Nicky Grist Stages on the 10th July, then to Ludlow for Round 5, the Woodpecker Stages 4th September. The penultimate round will be on the 16th October in the Forest of Dean for Wyedean Rally, 16th. The championship concludes on the 30th October with the Llandudno based Cambrian Rally.
Confirming the calendar Dave Evison, Championship Secretary, commented, “As an organising team we are delighted to be able to once again offer our competitors the opportunity to tackle some of the best gravel stages in the country, Dave together with Will Rogers, have been working hard to offer contenders a professional yet friendly championship with great competition, increased media coverage and live updates provided by Howard Davies, expect further announcements soon.
