    When I used to go and watch the event in the 1970's & 80's 36 hour days were normal. Then one night sleep followed by another 36 hour day!

    Once upon a time when I was seven years old back in the 60´s, my father took me to Kenya and Safari rally. We lived in the bush for one week only having water to drink. No food except from one or another grasshopper. Sleeping under the sky counting stars hearing lions and elephanths from near distance. No toilet. Only pee.

    Rallycars every five hours after moving some hundred miles to each stage. But it was fun.

    Hi folks,

    Looking for some advice. Coming down from Scotland for the Wales rally.

    Attended the BRC Pirelli event at Kielder in April and enjoyed, so we (me, my wife and 5yo son) decided to come down to Wales for this.

    We have tickets for the Colwyn Bay stage and an all day pass for the Sunday.

    My loose plan was to head to Newtown for Saturday lunch time for the re-group.Will that be worthwhile? On the Friday night we're staying in Runcorn so its an hour+half drive there, so possibly not worth the effort if the re-group doesn't really amount to much.

    Was also thinking of going to Llandudno after to visit the service park. I know there won't be any cars getting serviced, so again Im wondering if that will be worthwhile?

    Then Colwyn Bay, and after that staying the night in Rhyl (I booked that months ago and now realise that was a bit of a mistake!)

    Sunday - I assume you can quite easily do both Alwen and Brenig stages as they're so close to one another - but perhaps not?

    So my plan for Sunday was Alwen-Brenig- sit about for a bit (will there be any food or drink kiosks?) while the cars go to Great Orme and then Alwen and Brenig. In terms of the WRC i think Brenig will finish about 1pm - we have a flight from Manchester at 17:05 which should be sufficient time, unless getting out the car park will take a long time - will it?

    Also - what time should i be looking to park the car at Alwen on the Sunday morning, in order A) get there on time and B) avoid a lengthy walk (we have a 5 year old). We're staying in Rhyl the night before and its about an hour away, so its looking like a very early start - I wonder just how early!!

    Thanks in advance, Steven

    While I doubt there'll be absolute prolonged gridlock, there will be a large amount of people leaving there at that time. The situation can vary a lot depending upon where you end up in the car park, which can be largely outside of your control. This will also translate into a pretty slow run up the A5. Also bear in mind you may well have a fair walk back to your car from the stage, depending on where you end up in the 'car park'/area. So err on the side of caution, given you've got a flight to catch. I think I'd be leaving halfway through the last stage, at latest, as even then the lot out of Alwen will have the jump on you.

    As early as you possibly can! It's an unfortunately early start time on Sunday... The organisers don't help the situation by having such a limited itinerary on Sunday, so pretty much all the spectators will be having to head for the same place, up the B4501 to the area between Brenig and Alwen.

    Start is in Liverpool, on the Pier Head outside the Liver Building. Finish will be on the promenade in Llandudno. According to the rally planner.
