Rally GB all­com­ers!

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Clas­sic ral­ly­ing cars will com­pete with World Rally Cham­pi­onship con­tenders for the first time at the Wales Rally GB.

A new rule dis­pen­sa­tion for the event, tak­ing place on 26-29 Oc­to­ber, means that all ve­hi­cles en­ter­ing can have World Rally Cham­pi­onship en­tries. This means that Ford Es­cort MkIs and MkIIs can go head to head with the new­est en­tries for the first time in more than 30 years.

Ben Tay­lor, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Dayin­sure Wales Rally GB says: ‘Bri­tain’s WRC round is now gen­uinely open to those who want to take on the full chal­lenge.

‘ There aren’t many sports where you can le­git­i­mately claim to be com­pet­ing on the same field as the world stars.

‘Hope­fully the fans are go­ing to get to see a wider va­ri­ety of amaz­ing rally cars in the stages and it will also un­der­line the fact that Wales Rally GB is about show­cas­ing the very best of Bri­tish ral­ly­ing to the fans and to the world.’
