    That should be an excuse we could excuse, don´t we Tor Andre?

    How many times will Desborough mention the man from Dungannon in his commentary? Perhaps I should get odds from Ostberg's sponsor?

In that case if you leave after the WRC cars you must get back to your car, drive like crazy on roads with farmers / foresters etc who don't give a monkey's about rallying, in the way. You then arrive at the next stage 2 miles away rom the action at the closest you can get. The timings, apart from going to Dyfnant on Saturday, mean that it could be a lot of effort for no reward. On the other hand the Roger Albert Clark rally is a stage hoppers dream!
    I usually try to go for mid morning and late afternoon stage and I've still been caught out in Wales, no parking at all or 2hr hike uphill Then there's the twisting mountain roads which are pitch black until gone 8am, and take far longer than you think to traverse. I'm staying a lot more central this year so hopefully that gives me more time.

    The frustrating thing is always to walk past so many gaps where cars easily fit. What we did in the years we were there, is when you were stopped to park cause it was full, just wait in the car until the marshalls were gone and than continue driving towards to stage. Always somewhere you can park a rental haha.

    Just sucks when the guys behind you won't back up so you have to dig yourself into the snow bank

    Replace snow bank with muddy ditch on one side and sheer drop on the other. Wales is one of the best for bringing the authentic rally experience to the hapless fan.
