Rally GB thanks: part one

Motor Sport News - - Have your Say -

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
