Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

Wales Rally GB clerk of the course Iain Camp­bell has praised the hard work put in to preparing the route for next month’s event.

With much of the event be­ing re­versed from last year, new spec­tat­ing ar­eas had to be es­tab­lished and con­structed in time for the start of the fi­nal Euro­pean WRC round of the sea­son on Oc­to­ber 27.

Camp­bell, who was joined on the recce by event safety co-or­di­na­tor Sue San­ders and FIA safety del­e­gate Ry­land James, said: “This was prob­a­bly our last chance to cover the route and to be able to im­ple­ment any changes to our safety plans should they be re­quired. Check­ing spec­ta­tors have the best view­ing lo­ca­tions is im­por­tant, but it’s vi­tal they can do so safely and en­joy the whole ex­pe­ri­ence. I’m glad to say very lit­tle was changed dur­ing our recce of the route – tes­ta­ment to the amount of hard work put in by our vol­un­teers over the last eight months.”
