Car Rally, Fri 4 Oct 2019

LL41 3NB


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.

Friday will be taking advantage of the Rally’s new base in Llandudno, with the day’s proceedings based in the forests of the Snowdonia National Park in north Wales – packed with nine speed tests set either side of a lunchtime return to the Service Park.

The day opens in the shadows of Mount Snowdon with classic stages in Conwy County’s forests of Elsi and Penmachno, near Betws-y-Coed, and then heads further south towards Welshpool for timed tests in the Dyfnant and Aberhinant forests. All four stages are repeated in the afternoon with the second run through Aberhirnant taking place well after sunset and in total darkness.

Friday afternoon will see the rally return to Slate Mountain, located at The Slate Caverns, Blaenau Ffestiniog, now with a new, upgraded surface laid since the venue was first used last October. This will be Stage 8, with the first cars expected just before 16:00.
