Details

Wales Rally GB will be the 12th round of the FIA World Rally Championship in 2019 and will take place from Thursday 3rd to Sunday 6th October.

Following a final pre-event Shakedown held this year for the first time in Gwydir Forest, Snowdonia, on Thursday morning, all the competing teams will make their way over the border to Liverpool for the Ceremonial Start.

The 2019 competitive action then blasts off at the popular Oulton Park circuit, Chester, on a purposefully designed special stage incorporating sections of the picturesque racetrack. A full evening of entertainment is planned, with appearances from WRC legends and iconic vehicles, live music and DJs, historic rally displays and an autograph session which will be open to all spectators.

Following the dramatic Thursday evening curtain-raiser, the crews will head back to Llandudno in readiness for the forest stages that follow.

Picnic sitePublic toilets

The Gwydir Forest can be accessed from eight different car parks and locations. Most of which are close to refreshment places and toilets. 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.
