Al­wen “My tip for Sun­day is for Al­wen. The main car park is near a hair­pin right around half­way through the stage. But if you go a lit­tle bit after that, you’re head­ing to­wards the Al­wen reser­voir. There’s a re­ally cool sec­tion of rolling crests and fast com­mit­ted cor­ners along­side the reser­voir. That’s where I send my folks when they go to watch.”


Plac­ing the rose-tinted spec­ta­cles on for a se­cond, Ch­ester is one of the places most syn­ony­mous with Wales Rally GB. Hear­ing the cars blast through the city cen­tre at mid­night after be­ing re­paired at var­i­ous car deal­er­ships around the area is a mem­ory that lives on with many lo­cals.

The his­toric Ro­man city re­turns to the itin­er­ary this year, with muddy rally cars pass­ing un­der the East­gate clock once more. The re­group is a chance to get close to the stars and cars and wit­ness a spec­ta­cle.
