Wales Rally GB
Wales Rally GB takes in North Wales during October each year. The 2018 Rally takes place from 4 - 7 October 2018 and is the 11th round of the FIA World Rally Championship. To date, it is one of only two events (along with Finland) to have retained its status as both a qualifying and scoring round of the WRC since the championship was established in 1973.
Wales has hosted the world championship event since 2000; first based in south Wales and then moving to north Wales in 2013. Highlighting the automotive industry’s importance to the Welsh economy, the rally’s Headquarters and central Service Park are located on a new site alongside the Toyota Engine Plant on Deeside in Flintshire.
