Route

  • Revised format with a greater emphasis on north Wales. 
  • Friday’s opening leg mixes the second and third days from 2013, taking in classic central Wales roads in Dyfi, Gartheiniog and Hafren Forests. 
  • It contains almost half the rally’s competitive distance with only a 15-minute remote service. 
  • Saturday’s action is closer to the Deeside service park. Most roads are familiar from last year but many will be used in the opposite direction. A short Sunday leg concludes the season. 
  • Short fan-friendly parkland stages are included on Saturday and Sunday, with Saturday’s Chirk Castle stage on asphalt.

Challenge

  • Fast, tree-lined forest tracks are not technically difficult, but made difficult by muddy and slippery conditions.   
  • Unpredictable weather can bring, rain, snow, ice and fog.
  • Uncertain grip as isolated patches of mud or ice can trap the unwary.
  • Logs piled high close to the edge of roads must be avoided at all costs.
