Rally 4 wales, the in­de­pen­dent or­gan­i­sa­tion re­spon­si­ble for re­pair­ing gravel roads run by Nat­u­ral Re­sources Wales, for ral­ly­ing, has an­nounced that the ma­jor­ity of events won’t have a fee in­crease for the 2018 sea­son.

R4W stepped in at the be­gin­ning of 2017 as a private op­er­a­tion to re­pair roads af­ter events, as ral­ly­ing on NRW land had been in doubt as the govern­ment or­gan­i­sa­tion had threat­ened to in­crease its costs by nearly 100 per cent.

Na­tional-sta­tus rally events us­ing 18 or more gravel road miles on Nat­u­ral Re­sources Wales land will have no cost in­creases in 2018. Other events will be sub­ject to a small fee rise of 3.9 per cent from the 2017 rates, in-line with in­fla­tion rates.

Any events run­ning less than 18 miles but more than 10 miles on NRW land will also trig­ger the 3.9 per cent fee in­crease, along with a 50 per cent charge for mo­bil­i­sa­tion costs.

Any events us­ing less than 10 miles on NRW for­est gravel roads will also trig­ger the 3.9 per cent fee in­crease, plus bear 100 per cent of mo­bil­i­sa­tion costs.
