Entries opened for the Winners Garage Skoda Wyedean Stages Rally with organisers promising competitors something a little different.
The event, organised by Forest of Dean Motor Club, takes place on 11 November with three of the four forests used not having featured on the Wyedean Rally for a number of years.
The event will be based in Mitcheldean once again and competitors will tackle 40 stage miles and around 65 road miles, the four stages each being tackled twice.
First car will leave Mitcheldean at 09:31, returning there for service between the two loops, and will finish around 15:00.
Launching the event, Clerk of the Course Martyn Walby said, “With the Dean Forests only being used for rallying once a year, we have found the roads to be in excellent condition, this will offer competitors a real driving treat”.
The rally is a round of no fewer than eight championships including the Pirelli MSA Welsh Forest Rally Championship along with The Brian Dennis Motorsport Welsh Historic Championship, The Restruct Ltd WAMC Mixed Surface Championship, West Wales Rally Spares HRCR Stage Masters Challenge, ‘www.jelfmotorsport.com’ Welsh Clubman’s Forest Championship, ASWMC Loose Stage Rally Championship, FMP Rally Challenge and the Gwynnespeed Rally Challenge. Entries are therefore expected to be at a premium.
