    What an amazing surprise, it looks great! From out of nowhere they’ve announced that the RAC have come onboard as principal sponsor, this has allowed them to produce an itinerary more befitting the great history of this event. Seemingly the main service park ‘homes’ infrastructure will stay in Deeside thoughout the event, but with a kind of ‘super remote service’ in Gateshead (next to central Newcastle) hosting service on Saturday night/Sunday morning. The start and finish will be in Chester. There’ll also be a regroup in central Carlisle on Saturday afternoon.

    Ian Campbell, Clerk of the Course says “We’d like to thank the RAC for becoming Rally GB’s principle sponsor, this has allowed us to create a route that I’m sure all fans will recognise as a huge challenge and fantastic opportunity to go ‘Back to the Future’ with our sport. I look forward seeing fans across Britain out on the stages later this year. I’d also like to thank the FIA and WRC Promoter for supporting our plans to create a more challenging event.”

    Sounds fantastic route with very few repeat stages. Think we should carefully note this date in our diaries as date a WRC itinerary with substance was announced. ;-)

    Is this April fools..? I cannot find any information about this online. On top of this, it seems unlikely. Also that route mentions more than 350km which does not comply with the rules.

    Anyway, this should be WRC going back to it´s roots. 1st of April or not, and new R1 regulations or not...
