It's all systems go for the Australian Motorsport Action Group's (AMSAG) return to racing on the Mid North Coast in 2021.
Both State rally and rallysprint seasons were heavily disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, but the organisation has vowed to return strongly next season.
A test day will be held at Black Springs on February 27 before the rallysprint series gets underway at the Love Motorsport Rallysprint, near Wauchope, on March 13.
Bulahdelah will then host the rally season opener on March 27. Forest areas used in previous rallies will once again form the course.

After a mid-year tour of the New England and Central West areas of NSW, racing returns to the North Coast for round four of the rally series on July 24.
The course, south of Macksville, will be directed by former Australian Rally Champion Nathan Quinn.
Despite the popular set-up this season, changes will be made to the route to create a new challenge for competitors.
Coopernook will play host to round four of the rallysprint series on August 7. This event was a casualty in the 2020 program reshuffle due to pandemic restrictions.
In August, AMSAG president Michael Bannon promised the event would 'return with vigour' next season.

That's what is set to happen, with organisers Chris and Mike Cherry already looking forward to the round.
Both competitions will end on the weekend of October 30 and 31 with the Oberon Rally and Black Springs Rallysprint.
With the gradual relaxation of restrictions, AMSAG is confident spectators will once again be able to sit trackside to watch all the action.
Meanwhile, an announcement will be made in the coming weeks in relation to the annual general meeting and series presentation night.
