Organisers of Wales Rally GB have a revised four-day route following the discovery of tree disease in mid-Wales by Natural Resources Wales.
The original itinerary announced in May with two runs through the full Myherin Special Stage on Friday has been shortened to allow contractors to remove infected larch trees.
The spread of fungus-like Phytophthora ramorum can only be detected with the advent of early summer growth – hence the belated need to amend the previously confirmed route.
However, the UK’s penultimate round of the thrilling 2017 FIA World Championship still features187.5 miles of competitive action, as crews will face a second run through the Aberhirnant stage near Bala.
This has been added to Saturday morning’s schedule and will offer the fans and crews an early sighter in advance of the evening’s final stage.
