Wales Rally GB - Stage 14

Wales Rally GB - Stage 14

Details

Billed as 'Super Saturday', Wales Rally GB's longest and most demanding day features five epic special stages, all set in the mountains to the east of Aberystwyth with excellent spectating for the large numbers of weekend visitors. Stage 14 is set in Dyfnant Forest, north-west of Welshpool.

Myherin (Stage 10 at 08:35), Hafren (Stage 11 09:15), Dyfi (Stage 12 10:28) and Gartheiniog (Stage 13 11:02) are world-renowned as true classics that always push crews to their limits and provide fans with some outstanding viewing opportunities. Hafren has been extended this year to incorporate the Sweet Lamb rally complex - always a fans' favourite with its jumps and water splash.

All four stages are tackled twice - either side of the day's new live TV stage set in Dyfnant Forest (Stage 14 at 12:09) north-west of Welshpool. A lunchtime regroup on the busy streets of central Newtown punctuates the action at 13:17. The afternoon stages and times are Myherin (Stage 15 at 14.50), Hafren (Stage 16 15:30), Dyfi (Stage 17 16.43) and Gartheiniog (Stage 18 17:18) .

Picnic site

There are three car parks managed by Natural Resources Wales in Dyfnant Forest from which to start your visit. All three have free parking: Penyffordd – the hub for the Dyfnant Rainbow Trails for horse riders. The facilities here are: Purpose built car park with a one way system to allow drivers of horse boxes to roll in and roll out. Ample parking for horse trailers and cars. Corral for horses. Hendre - the starting point for the carriage driving routes. The facilities here are: Car park with hitching rails. Picnic tables. Quiet area to harness up and put to. Ample space for horse boxes. Pont Llogel - a small woodland with a waymarked short walk along the River Vyrnwy and access to two longer walks looked after by Powys County Council. Please note: Sometimes we need to close or divert trails for your safety whilst we undertake maintenance work or forest operations. Occasionally we may have to close a site in extreme weather, such as high winds or snow and ice due to the risk of injury to visitors or staff. Please always follow any instructions onsite and make sure you follow any temporary diversion signs in place.
