The Law of Forests puts at risk the Rally of Wales


to Organise a test of the WRC is almost the task of risk and in the last few weeks has been able to verify. The Rally of Australia lived days of anguish after seeing as the government withdrew part of the state aid to organize the test, even though everything was in a scare and the waters returned to their channel. In this line it seems that the Rally of Poland also drag economic problems, although the latest to join this infamous list is the Rally of Wales. The historical test has been affected by a change approved by the Government of the country.

The law of forests is assuming a headache for the Rally of Wales, the entire time that the agreement currently expires on the 31st of may, the grounds of all subsequent events to the new rules for the use of the forest tracks. In addition to toughen the conditions for its use, the canon of use of forest roads has been raised in a 90% with respect to the previous rates, which involves an expenditure is certainly complicated to assume, for the developer of a test that is a dispute between the days 27 and 30 of November.

the promoter of The Rally of Wales and the National Resource Wales have begun to negotiate, but for the moment, the agreement is very far away. The managing body of the forest resources of the country has a posture, hard and fierce, all time estimates the cost of maintenance of the forest tracks derived from the celebration of the last Rally of Wales amounted to 830,000 euros, a figure that contrasts with the 427.000 euros, which in theory payment by the promoter in respect of the fee for the test. This factor could affect the conclusion of the test, or in a less painful, bind to and modify the route to decrease the mileage in the forests managed by the NRW.
