    Wales Rally GB

    OK,

    I'm happy to kick this one off.... Just under a month to go and we're in for a proper, flat-out rally, given it's position on the calendar and the way the championship it hotting up.
    I'm going to travel down from the north east on Thursday night and spectate Friday and Saturday. Can't wait., should be epic.

    One negative point though.... how come they are charging 28 for a ticket for Thursday, when there is only one stage, yet Sunday has five stages and they are charging 23?

    Enjoy if you go!

    T16.

    Does that Thursday ticket also get you into Shakedown? I didn't do Tir Prince last year but a few friends who did absolutely slated it.

    You can spectate the Orme for free on Sunday which is possibly why they've reduced that price?


    The big question is whether we get any interesting entries. Seems to be less and less the case these days and I'm not holding out much hope for Meeke.

    Yeah, it gets you into both, but I'm hoping it's just a pricing error, thought I doubt it. I find it completely shocking to be honest... I thought they were trying to get more people into the sport.

    Can't imagine Meeke will get an entry, but again, I very much hope I am wrong. Eddie seems to be convinced that he is still contracted to Citroen, so I guess that will squash any chances he has. It would be nice to think another team brought him into play from a tactical point-of-view, given his experience. Shame.

    Would be probably a good idea to edit the year into the topic title.

    The route is interesting, with a lot of tarmac sections and roads that haven't been used before, at least in years.

    Also heading up on the Thursday night and watching Friday/Saturday before heading back south. Can't be hassled with driving from the Sweet Lamb area back up towards Brenig, only to give myself a longer drive home on Sunday evening.

    Still not picked what stages I'm going to but will probably head for car parks and sleep in the van rather than go for the 2 footed discount.
    You're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.

    I too am planning on sleeping in the van... did you know they are charging a tenner for anyone sleeping overnight?

    No? In that case, f**k 'em and I'll apply the 2 foot discount...unless anyone knows of a code like the Toyota one last year that got 50% off.

    Good news! The speed that credited @NilSolans during the @ADACRallye, where he came to fight for the leadership of #WRC 2, has had his reward. @MSportLtd and @pirellisport have decided to enroll @WalesRallyGB him in, where he debuts with him as a co-pilot @MarcMartiWRC.
