Details

Following Saturday’s showcase scrutineering sessions on the town’s Esplanade, the event starts from the National Library adjacent to Aberystwyth University on Sunday morning and features four special stages in the morning over a series of challenging yet enjoyable to drive roads set in spectacular countryside. Competitors will head back to the campus for the day’s service halt before a repeat of the same four stages in the afternoon and, after completing a total of 43 competitive miles, will return to the University for the finish ceremony.

Organisers believe that the rally will set new standards when it comes to access, convenience, safety and spectacular viewing opportunities for spectators. An innovative Park-and-Ride service will be introduced for the day of the rally, which will see specially chartered buses departing from Aberystwyth every 15 - 20 minutes and take spectators directly to specially designated areas that provide safe and well-positioned vantage points.

The event is endorsed by Visit Wales and Ceredigion County Council and run in accordance with the Government’s Road Traffic Act regulations and guidelines that were updated in 2018 to allow timed competition on closed public roads.

Organisers are delighted to have formed a partnership with Aberystwyth University, its facilities and geographical position making it an ideal location at which to host the event HQ, start, finish and service park. Adding to its appeal, the venue’s 3000+ bed accommodation is being offered to competitors at extremely attractive rates.

The organising team comprises four Welsh Motor Clubs: Newtown and District, Aberystwyth and District, Lampeter and District and Teifi Valley.

Title sponsor for the rally is the UK’s largest privately owned mobile phone retailer Get Connected, which has 50 stores based mainly in Wales, one of which is located in Aberystwyth town centre.

- First rally held entirely on closed public roads in Wales
