Wales Rally GB Roars Into North Wales

After months of planning and preparation, the ‘new-look’ Wales Rally GB (14-17 November) is primed and ready for some spectacular action as the 2013 FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) reaches its thrilling conclusion in the legendary Welsh forests.

The newly crowned 2013 WRC champion Sébastien Ogier heads the star-studded field which also includes two past Wales Rally GB winners from Scandinavia, Mikko Hirvonen and Jari-Matti Latvala. The established rally aces will be joined by former F1 grand prix winner Robert Kubica and Olympic gold medallist Amy Williams MBE.

The high-speed show blasts off in Snowdonia on Thursday evening (14 November) following a glittering Ceremonial Start in front of Conwy Castle. Conwy Quay from 18:30hrs will be lit up by fireworks, searchlights, flames and lasers while Conwy Castle’s medieval fortifications will be transformed by some amazing digitally-created visuals.

In total the WRC competitors face 22 classic special stages, all run against the clock, before the winner is crowned back in Llandudno on Sunday afternoon. Adding to the sense of occasion, the Great Orme that overlooks both Conwy and Llandudno – and witnesses the rally’s final competitive stage on Sunday – will be floodlit for the duration of the world championship event.

The event’s move to north Wales not only features a new Headquarters and Service Park in Deeside but also the inclusion of three exciting new, family-friendly RallyFest Stages at Sweet Lamb (Friday), Chirk Castle (Saturday) and Kinmel Park (Sunday). Aimed at providing a full day’s entertainment for all ages, these RallyFests include big screens, live music, car displays plus a host of other fun-filled attractions. There’s also live music on offer at the Service Park on the Friday and Saturday evenings.

“It all adds up to four incredible days of fabulous entertainment,” said Andrew Coe, Chief Executive of rally organiser International Motor Sports Ltd. “An unbelievable amount of work has gone into creating what’s really a totally new event based in north Wales, and everything is now all set for what’s going to be some cracking World Championship action. I can’t wait for the sporting show to start.

“It’s fantastic that we have sold out of space at our Chirk Castle and Kinmel Park hospitality venues – with Chirk Castle being a spectacular backdrop to the event. We are expecting many fans to line the route coming along to experience the thrill of rallying, and to support the only British round of the WRC.”

Various ticket options will be available to purchase ‘on the day’ from the official Wales Rally GB ticket offices at Venue Cymru (in Llandudno) and the Deeside Service Park. Fans can take advantage of the revised ticket pricing for 2013 with ‘on the gate’ adult entry to individual special stages just £15** on a first come first served basis.

* Limited tickets are available to purchase ‘on the gate’ for individual Forest and RallyFest Stages, subject to availability. World Rally Passes (providing access to all of the action over the four days) and Day Passes are on sale at the official Wales Rally GB ticket offices
