Monument stage opens to WRGB spectators

“We're delighted to be able to offer our loyal WRP holders entry to this exclusive stage - as well as the chance to appear on television in the live coverage - and are grateful to the area commanders and route co-ordinators that have helped us to make this happen...” - Andrew Coe.

The organisers of Wales Rally GB have announced that the concluding stage of the 13th and final round of the 2011 World Rally Championship, the Monument Power Stage, will be open to spectators for the first time this year.

The Monument stage will be used twice on Sunday November 13, and it is possible the second running of the stage will play host to the deciding thriller of the whole rally and possibly the entire Championship.

The Power Stage is a new concept in the WRC this season and awards bonus points to the fastest three drivers.

To mark this landmark occasion - and after listening to fans' requests following last year's successful launch of Monument's mixed-surface course - organisers have opened up this year's 4.36km stage exclusively to World Rally Pass (WRP) holders to witness the action up close.

“After last year's successful running of the Monument stage which saw Petter Solberg and Sebastien Loeb take stage victory in the two runs, we wanted to find a way to allow spectators' access to this thrilling conclusion to the Championship,” explained Andrew Coe, chief executive of Wales Rally GB's organiser, International Motor Sports Limited.

“We're delighted to be able to offer our loyal WRP holders entry to this exclusive stage - as well as the chance to appear on television in the live coverage - and are grateful to the area commanders and route co-ordinators that have helped us to make this happen.”

Wales Rally GB runs from November 10-13. Tickets are on sale now, priced from just £10 (£1 for children).
