DAYINSURE WALES RALLY GB 2018

Info

Event History

  • Founded in 1932, 341 competitors started the inaugural Royal Automobile Club Rally.
  • Introduction of forest roads in 1960 transformed the rally into what we know today.
  • Route formerly included loops around England, Scotland and Wales but the rally has been based largely in Wales since 2000.
  • Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium hosted the WRC’s first indoor stage in 2005.

Challenge

  • Tree-lined forest tracks are not technically difficult, but are treacherous in muddy conditions.
  • Unpredictable weather can bring, rain, ice and fog.
  • Inconsistent and ever-changing grip as isolated patches of mud or ice can trap the unwary.
  • Logs piled high close to the edge of roads must be avoided at all costs.

Car Setup

  • Gravel suspension.
  • Soft compound tyres essential in cold, wet conditions.
  • Studded tyres are banned – even in extreme winter conditions.
