Preview: Wales Rally GB, 14-17 November

Published 30 October 2013

November’s Wales Rally GB, which takes place on 14-17 November, will pay tribute to some of the sport's greatest cars and drivers. Highlights include the Audi Sport quattro and MG Metro 6R4.

The event, recalls the British rounds of the FIA World Rally Championship since its introduction in 1973. A selection of eye-catching cars from the four decades since will be taking part in static displays and demonstration runs during this year’s event.

The full list of classic contenders from past generations on parade is impressive – it includes the Audi Sport quattro S1 (above), Ford Escort Cosworth, Lancia 037 (below), Lancia Delta S4, MG Metro 6R4, Peugeot 205 T16, Renault 5 Maxi Turbo plus a pair of Subaru Imprezas rallied by Colin McRae and Richard Burns. In total around 20 legendary cars are being provided by the Slowly Sideways UK organisation.

These collections will be on show at the Service Park in Deeside as well as at the new, family-friendly RallyFest Stages at Sweet Lamb on Friday and Kinmel Park on Sunday, when the cavalcade will also be in action performing on the Great Orme immediately before the main event. The biggest gathering, though, will be at the Chirk Castle RallyFest on Saturday, which will host both dramatic demonstration runs on the special stage and a static display featuring the full line-up of automotive idols from the past.

Individual adult tickets for the three RallyFest stages are priced at £25 – which includes a free programme normally priced at £7.50. Significant discounts also are available for families.
