Podcast: Rally GB braced for Brian
Organisers of Dayinsure Wales Rally GB [26 - 29 October] are braced for the arrival of Storm Brian, an Atlantic 'weather bomb', which is set to batter the UK this weekend.
Heavy rain and 70mph winds are forecast to hit rally route in mid and north Wales on Saturday night, three days before WRC crews begin the pre-event recce on Tuesday.
In the latest WRC Live Podcast, Rally GB clerk of the course, Iain Campbell, said his team was prepared for Brian's arrival, and had learned lessons from 2015, when a storm ripped through the service park in Deeside.
"The events in 2015 really put the focus on what we have to do in severe weather situations," Campbell [below] told WRC Live host Becs Williams.
"Fortunately, Brian is coming this weekend and not next weekend. But already the stage commanders and their teams are setting up the stages ready for the reconnaissance.
"There are people in the stages and if trees are brought down there are plans in place to get that resolved. Hopefully Brian will have blown through by Saturday and we'll be fine for next week."
Head to the podcast section to hear the full interview with Campbell who talks about how the anticipation is building ahead of the potential title decider.
