Wales Rally GB

One of the WRC’s oldest events, known today as Wales Rally GB, the Royal Automobile Club (RAC) Rally was first held in 1932 when it attracted an incredible 341 entries. A founding event of the WRC back in 1973, the popular gravel event changed to its current name in 2003, and offers crews a muddy challenge through spectacular forest routes.

The itinerary has previously included England and Scotland but in its current guise is run primarily in Wales. Held towards the end of the season, inclement weather conditions can create tricky conditions, making it one of the season’s most unpredictable and exciting events.
