RBF rides up for grabs on Rally GB

Don't just watch this year's Rally GB be part of it thanks to the Richard Burns Foundation.
Fancy riding in one of the most iconic rally cars in the history of world rallying?

Or how about being driven through the first ever World Rally Championship stage to run around the streets of the beautiful Cardiff Bay area by a triple British Rally Champion?

Your dreams can come true. And, by fulfilling your own ambitions, you can make the dreams of others come true too, thanks to the Richard Burns Foundation.

During this month's Wales Rally Great Britain, the Richard Burns Foundation will be auctioning rides in a selection of the rally cars which Richard drove on his way to becoming World Rally Champion. This opportunity comes as the sport remembers Burns five years on from his death from cancer.

You can bid for a seat alongside one of our guest drivers on Rally Great Britain by clicking here. Alternatively paste in the following link in your browser:


This link will take you direct to eBay to bid for a ride alongside British rallying superstar Mark Higgins in the very last rally car Richard ever drove, the toweringly successful Peugeot 206 WRC.

This is a once in a lifetime chance, so don't let this opportunity pass you by. And, remember, in having the time of your life – you're also helping extend the lives of those affected by brain cancer and other neurological disorders in the memory of England's first and only World Rally Champion.

Also keep an eye on www.richardburnsfoundation.com for the news of when the next auction will begin.

I largely agree with Daffyd. The shakedown stage at Margam was pretty poor last year compared with Penllergaer, but using a tarmac stage one mile long on Wednesday night, for a gravel rally is beyond belief. I'm surprised the teams have accepted this option. I hope the service area is better layed out this year. It was really poor last year - not far off as bad as SA1 - bring back Felindre - all is forgiven ! The whole route this year is pretty uninspiring again. Crychan is sh1t, and I can't believe they've left Rheola out, which putting aside 'Walters Arena' is a cracking stage. On the upside, I agree that the mixed surface stage at Epynt should be interesting. I've just read Jean Todt's comments in this weeks Autosport about his distaste for clover leaf format rallies, and his desire for the sport to return to endurance format rallies. This can't come soon enough. No disrespect to the Welsh, but I'm sick and tired of 'Rally Wales'

Well I cant believe I am seriously thnking about forgetting this years Rally altogether I think it is totally Sh1t, this is supposed to be a World class event, if organisers are forced to use 3 stages and repeat them,choose the best stages like Dyfi, Pantperhog, not Crychan and Halfway, there is more freedom within the rules now so lets branch out a little bit and find the quality I much prefer the traffic and congestion of the old days rushing to catch the next stage, than making stages so boring that no one goes them hence less traffic and Chaos This is our round of the World Championship, we should be proud of it not ashamed, 1 mile tarmac shakedown stage just nails the tin hat on the whole thing for me
