Wales Rally GB will blast off when the world’s best rally drivers take on a new challenge to open the October event.
A spectacular competitive stage will be created at the Tir Prince Raceway in Towyn, County Conwy, complete with jump and donut, to begin three days of unmissable World Rally Championship action.
This thrilling new addition will feature a 1.1-mile (1.7km) floodlit course incorporating parts of Tir Prince’s trotting track and other areas within the park
Thanks to the proactive and enthusiastic support from Conwy County Borough Council – the rally’s official ‘Host County’ – the Visit Conwy Special Stage at Tir Prince will be an amazing opportunity for the north Wales public to see these amazing new WRC cars in action.
In addition, fans will be treated to a full evening of exhilarating car-themed entertainment with autograph sessions, interviews, commentary, big screens, dedicated trackside viewing areas, catering, a funfair, merchandise shopping and much, much more.
The venue is easily accessible, situated close to Kinmel Bay in the busy north Wales resort region and close to the A55 north Wales Expressway, providing straightforward travel for those in cities such as Liverpool and Manchester.
|“It’s going to be a great night out,” enthused Ben Taylor, Wales Rally GB Managing Director.|
“Rallying is an amazing sport, but it can be difficult for people to get to see it, so we are always looking for innovative ways to bring it to new audiences.
|The Tir Prince stage adult tickets are £10 when purchased in advance, £15 on the gate, while accompanied children aged 15 and under are admitted free.|
Admission is included with the four-day World Rally Pass, available for £99, and the Thursday Day Pass, which costs £28.
“The stage at Tir Prince will be a great first, bringing the action to the heart of this busy region and getting the event off to the best possible start. With many people on half-term holidays, the area will be buzzing; I have no doubt that we’ll get an amazing crowd for this memorable event.”
|An arena spectator stage was a feature of WRGB in the early years it was based in Cardiff Millennium Stadium and another year the section was built on land in Cardiff Docks, and this remains unused on the Severn Estuary foreshore.||The award-winning events team at Conwy County Borough Council has been instrumental in facilitating this opening stage at Tir Prince. It is understandably delighted to be pushing the boundaries and bringing the outstanding FIA World Rally Championship to new parts of the county.|
