Route

  • 2016 rally details not yet available

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.

Car spec

  • Gravel suspension. 
  • Soft compound tyres essential in cold, wet conditions. 
  • Studded tyres are banned – even in extreme winter conditions.

History

  • Founded in 1932, 367 crews entered the inaugural Royal Automobile Club Rally. 
  • Introduction of forest roads in 1960 transformed the rally into what we know today. 
  • Route formerly included loops around England, Scotland and Wales but the rally has been based solely in Wales since 2000. 
  • Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium hosted the WRC’s first indoor stage in 2005.
