Details

The Wales Rally GB blasts off in spectacular style with classic speed tests in the legendary forests of Mid Wales. The opening day’s schedule on Friday 27 October features three Special Stages, all set to the west of Llanidloes & Llangurig/east of Aberystwyth. Myherin and Hafren are world-renowned as true classics while, with its jumps and water splashes, the shorter Sweet Lamb test is always a fans’ favourite.

All three stages are tackled twice – once either side of a lunchtime regroup on the busy streets of Newtown before the cars head back to service, stopping off en route in Chester to meet the fans.

Stage 2 will be at Myherin (10:35), Stage 3 Sweet Lamb (11:18) and Stage 4 Hafren (11:33). The crews will then head on to the Regroup/Tyre & Light fitting zone at Newtownn (13:10). The cars return to Myherin for Stage 5 (14:49), Sweet Lamb (Stage 6 - 15:32) and Hafren (Stage 7 - 15:47).

The original itinerary announced in May included two runs through the full Myherin Special Stage - this has now been shortened to allow contractors to remove infected larch trees. The spread of fungus-like Phytophthora ramorum can only be detected with the advent of early summer growth - hence the belated need to amend the previously confirmed route.

Spectators are advised that the changes in Myherin have necessitated the creation of new car parks and viewing areas. As a result, fans will not be able to access the stage through the normal routes and should check the rally planner in September for parking directions.
