Anyone going, or like rallying. I`m going and can`t wait, apart from the weather, I think it always rains in Wales. No Vauxhalls in the WRC, so I`ll be cheering on the scoobies!:D

basically, round Cardif, or a short distance from it. I staying in a B&B in Barry town (sounds great!) with a woman who can`t cook breakfast, had an op or something......can`t help feeling I`m being done! Should be a great 3 days.

Most of it is 30 - 60 miles from Cardiff, nearer Swansea. Only the superspecials take place in Cardiff in the evenings.
My friend, my brother and myself have full WRC passes which gives you access to any stage on any day. We are there for the full four days.

Be prepared to get cold, wet, muddy, blisters, wet again and even colder. That said it is great fun.

Yeah, I went for the final day last year. The weather was really good last year, unusually, but this year there is patchy rain forecast on the Friday and snow and sleet on the Saturday and Sunday :eek:

(My brother lives in Swansea and has been for the last five or so years. Free accomodation within 2 miles of Felindre service park :D )

Full set of timings there:

http://www.walesrallygb.com/downloads/files/rgb/Itinerary Draft 5.9 (final).pdf

You need to be at the stages well before the start due to the number of people there, and also because some of the car parks (And on some stages such as Resolfen I use the phrase car park loosely :)) are a good long walk from the stage itself.

It is physically impossible to see all the stages because when the last car is finishing one stage the front cars will be well through the next one.
All you can do is try to sort out beforehand which stages to go, with a backup later stage if you get held up. Hectic but quite fun actually :)

:D <º))))><.·´¯`·.I live in wales, I live in wales¸.·´¯`·.¸><((((º> :D

Shall I go? Sounds alright - quite fancy it. Can I just turn up and buy tickets? I'm guessing u have to pay obviously?

I know nothing about this. Didn't know until I seen this post.

When is it? what date does it start? Weather's being suprisingly good lately - no rain or mud. Frigging cold though the last week. Tis a bitch to work on me Manta when u can't feel your fingers.

Anything u need to find out bout wales i can tell ya - places to stay (best fields of sheep!, best tractors - That's about all their is to wales ; 0)

cheers sam
