In Pictures: Wales Rally GB service park
Final tweaks to the World Rally Cars, pace notes being perfected and drivers facing the glare of the media spotlight, it proved to be a busy few days day as the service park burst into life at Dayinsure Wales Rally GB (4-7 October).
From service bases next to Toyota’s engine plant in Deeside, the four manufacturer teams made finishing touches in preparation for tonight’s opening stage under the spotlights at Tir Prince Raceway.
Meanwhile drivers and team principals were the focus of pre-event media attention, fielding questions about everything from championship battles, as the competition reaches a crucial stage, and speculation about driver moves for 2019.
