The 2013 Wales Rally GB (14-17 November) will feature a new home in North Wales, an exciting new competitive route plus a new ticketing offer – all reinforcing the legendary event’s position as one of the most challenging and attractive on the FIA World Rally Championship calendar.
The rally’s Headquarters and central Service Park will be located on a new site being prepared alongside the Toyota Plant in Deeside in Flintshire. The event’s ceremonial start will be hosted in Conwy on the Thursday evening with the finishing line celebrations in neighbouring Llandudno on Sunday afternoon.
Highlights will include:
Four-days of competitive action featuring a more compact route with the majority of the timed Special Stages set in the classic Welsh forests.
Night and family-friendly spectator stages reintroduced into the itinerary
Wider range of tickets at significantly lower prices catering for both traditional rally enthusiasts in the forests and new audiences featuring additional facilities.
“We have listened to what the teams and fans want in our determined efforts to create what we are confident will be not only one of the best rounds in the WRC but also a fitting finale to the entire 2013 world championship,” explained Andrew Coe, Chief Executive of rally organiser International Motor Sports.
“South Wales has provided us with a fantastic home for Wales Rally GB since 2000 but the move to North Wales has a number of significant advantages. Most importantly, perhaps, we are closer to the sport’s traditional heartlands, some iconic rally forests, as well as being within a short drive of some of the larger conurbations in the UK such as Liverpool, Manchester and the Midlands. Taking those factors into account, as well as our new ticket pricing policy which is designed to cater for both hardcore rally fans and a wider family audience, we are confident that the 2013 Wales Rally GB will be a highlight on the motor sport calendar.”
