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.

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.

Stages 4 & 9 are at Dyfnant (09:57 & 18:11) and Stages 5 & 10 at Aberhirnant (10:55 & 19:09).

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.
