After being forced to cancel the previous two years due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Manx Rally to Isle of man in the UK is now set to make a comeback and see rally cars on the narrow roads of the islands with the event taking place on May 13-14.

Last week it was confirmed that the rally would go ahead as planned with driver registration opening; the team behind the event worked hard for weeks to make this rally happen.
