Rally GB thanks: part one
With 164 competitors from 23 nations, the longest competitive route in recent history, a return to Chester after 20 years and a new Rally fest stage at Cholmondeley Castle that drew 10,000 fans, the 2016 Dayinsure Wales Rally GB could not have been a better showcase for UK rallying.
The continued backing of the Welsh Government as our principal funding partner remains invaluable, alongside the support of our 2016 title partner, Dayinsure, and our other partners and suppliers; their involvement has made a huge contribution to the progress the event has made in recent years.
Crucially, the rally would not have been possible without the support of almost 2000 volunteer marshals and officials, covering so many varied roles.
Whether contributing to the safety, logistics, promotion or the smooth running of the event, their efforts are sincerely appreciated by everyone at the MSA and IMS, not to mention the wider rallying community of competitors, teams and fans.
We hope that the rally was as special for you as it was for us and we look forward to seeing you all again next year. Ben Taylor Managing Director International Motor Sports
