All change for Ulster Rally thumbnailKeith Cronin won the 2017 instalment of the Ulster Rally on his way to clinching the British Championship.

THE Ulster International Rally will return to County Antrim earlier than planned next year in a surprise move for the closed-roads event.
Rally organisers were two years into a three year agreement with Derry and Strabane District Council to base it out of the Maiden City.
Just as he influenced that move, event backer and competitor John Mulholland has also had a hand in taking the Ulster east for 2018.
As a businessman himself, Mulholland said the rewards it would bring to the area were substantial. "It cannot be underestimated," he said.
“With thousands of visitors generating income over 1m, local hotels and guesthouses are set to profit from 2,500 bed nights."
The relocation means a new start/finish venue, two town centre regroups, and the use of some of the county's best Tarmac stages.
