Deputy Mayor of the Causeway Coast and Glens Cllr Darryl Wilson has welcomed the announcement today that part of the Rally will take place in Ballymoney at the Joey Dunlop Centre.
The cars will also visit the Dark Hedges for a photo opportunity before going on to the Bushmills Distillery which will be used as a backdrop. It is also welcome news that the iconic Glendun and Torr head stages will return this year after a lengthy absence.
Increasing the level of quality signature events in the area is paramount. The Circuit certainly falls into that category.
With tens of thousands of spectators following the stages each year and viewing figures which are well into the millions, we as a Borough have a great opportunity to showcase the most beautiful area of Northern Ireland while benefiting from increased tourism.
