Port Talbot Motor Club is pleased to further return the Red Dragon Rally toward the top echelons of British and Welsh rallying, and also to return it to the Neath Valley that the club ran stage events in for so many successful years. Due to the valiant efforts of Rally4Wales and progression of work in NRW land in the Vale of Neath we are pleased to announce that the event will be returning to some classic special stage mileage not rallied for a number of years, in addition to using the best roads within the nearby Walters Arena.  With continued work on the Neath Valley wind farm progressing the club is confident that more mileage will be available in NRW forests in the not too distant future, and the Red Dragon will be able to cover those miles that saw the ANCRO and WRC events going to such success in the Vale of Neath.

For 2017 the Red Dragon will again offer a compact ‘one day’ format with between thirty two and thirty five stage miles available, and a Central Service Area which will be visited three times during the day located within the Walters complex above GlynNeath.  A 10.30 am Start and a 3.00 pm Finish makes the rally particularly cost effective for crews, with  management and minimal road mileage. For 2017 the event is a round of Pirelli MSA Welsh Forest  Rally Championship, the Brian Dennis Motorsport Welsh Historic Rally Championship, the Jelf Motorsport Welsh Clubman’s Forest Rally Championship; the Restruct Ltd Welsh Mixed Surface Rally Championship incorporating the SP Challenge ; the ASWMC Reis Insurance Loose Surface Stage Championship and the ANWCC Forest Rally Championship.   We are sure it will be a worthy inclusion in all of the series.

We on the organising team welcome you and look forward to receiving your entry to the event, and wish you an enjoyable and most importantly a safe day of motorsport, and to seeing you all again in 2017, as the Red Dragon continues the reputation forged since its days as a round of the famed 'Motoring News' Road Rally Championship and 'best event' in the BTRDA Forest Stage Rally Series in more recent times.  With the rally now running in Mid August we hope that the weather gods of Wales will smile on the rally and the rain does not make another appearance!

The event is again supported by Nick Bradbury Photographic, providing the winners trophies, and present for ‘on event’ photography so please support Nicks efforts to assist you the competitor, as well as PTMC as event organisers. We wish you all a safe, successful and enjoyable return to the Red Dragon…
