The 2021 running of a popular rallying event that visits the region is set to run with a full capacity entry list.

The Roger Albert Clark Rally, which uses Kielder Forest as part of its mammoth schedule, saw nearly 200 entries submitted on Friday, of which 150 are able to take part.

Several leading competitors in the sport are set to compete after the entry list was published on Tuesday morning.

These include reigning winner of the bi-annual event Marty McCormack, who is set to re-ignite his battle with rival Jason Pritchard from 2019.

The impressive entry also consists of several other leading names, including British Rally Championship regulars Tom Cave, Rhys Yates and Osian Pryce, as well as historic frontrunner Matthew Robinson, who is set to return following a DNF on the last running of the rally two years ago.

The Roger Albert Clark Rally is designed to replicate the original running of the RAC Rally - a round of the FIA World Rally Championship in the 1970s and 80s - and is open to a range of older cars such as the Ford Escort MK2.
