Wales Rally GB Schedule

Rally GB Route The rally has a new-look with an extra day added to the itinerary.  After being based in Cardiff since 2000, the HQ moves to Builth Wells in mid-Wales, allowing the route to cover the length of the country from Thursday afternoon’s start in the north to Sunday’s finish in the south.  After the start in Llandudno, the short opening day includes two asphalt tests around the Great Orme headland, ending with a start ceremony in Conwy and service in Llandudno.  Friday brings the return of classic stages in Dyfi Forest last used in the rally in 1997, while Saturday follows the same configuration as last year’s opening leg in Hafren and Myherin Forests.  The final leg covers revised stages in the Brecon Beacon mountains and Epynt military land, using a mixture of asphalt and gravel roads.  Drivers overnight in Cardiff on Friday and Saturday and the city’s castle hosts the finish ceremony on Sunday afternoon.  Drivers tackle 23 speed tests covering 353.53km in a route of 1967.46km.
