Rally GB is one of the FIA WRC’s oldest events and can trace its history back to 1932, when over 367 crews entered the rally organised by the Royal Automobile Club. In terms of the event’s development, 1960 proved to be one of its most pivotal years. For the first time, organisers were permitted to include the forest stages with which the rally has become associated. In the past, the route has included tests around England, Scotland and Wales, but since the year 2000, it has been solely based in Wales. However the 2016 edition did see stages held in England for the first time since 1999.
