WRC Wales Rally GB: Route confirmed for WRC finale

Wales Rally GB: “This year's revised route combines the best bits from the past two years...”
Organisers of Wales Rally GB, Britain's round of the WRC, confirmed the route this week for the 2015 event, welcoming back the Myherin and Great Orme stages last seen in 2013.

November's three-day schedule includes 19 stages in total and around 312 competitive kilometres. The event will again be based in Deeside with the majority of the timed stages set in the forests of north and mid-Wales.

The route retains the family-friendly RallyFest at Chirk Castle, as well as the unique challenge of two stages run in darkness on Saturday evening.

After two years of hosting the ceremonial finish, the seaside town of Llandudno in Conwy County will this year play host to the ceremonial start, while the finish will switch to Deeside, extending the opening times of the service park into Sunday.

Once again, access to the service park, as well as to the start, finish and the regroups in Newtown on Friday and Llandudno on Sunday morning will be free of charge.

A full breakdown of the route for 2015 is available - HERE.

“The event has received many plaudits and awards since it moved to its new base in north Wales, but we are far from resting on our laurels,” said Ben Taylor, Wales Rally GB managing director. “We are always looking at ways to improve the rally for both competitors and spectators and this year's revised route combines the best bits from the past two years for those in the cars – Myherin is a real favourite with the drivers and the Great Orme provides one of the sport's most dramatic settings.”

Meanwhile, tickets for the event have now gone on sale. The price of the premium four-day World Rally Pass, providing access to all 19 special stages as well as Thursday's pre-event shakedown, has been held at £99 for the sixth year in a row.

Forest Passes have been reduced by 25 per cent from £33 in 2014 to £25 – these give access to all the stages on the selected day, except Saturday's RallyFest at Chirk Castle. Chirk Castle is the only RallyFest stage this year and tickets have been held at last year's price of £25 for an adult ticket, but a family ticket allows entry for two adults and up to three children for £45.

All adult tickets include free car parking and a free programme. Children aged 8 and under go free, while those aged 9-15 can view the action for just £1 under the on-going 'kids for a quid' scheme.

Fans can still turn up on the day of the event too, but entry to any single stage will be priced at £30 on the gate.
