The kings of the rally championship come once a year to south Wales.Either based in Cardiff or Swansea.Most stages take place in the mountains of forest in the valleys, however the special sprint stage takes place in the Staduim, a sight of seeing some of the worlds fastest land cars going head to head inside a 75,000 capicity stadium is out of this world, definetly not to be missed.
Equipment: Usually a coat, because it will probably rain.
In November Cardiff was the venue for the culmination of one of the most exciting World Rallies that had started in Monte Carlo all the way back in January.
Going into the race Carlos Sainz, Petter Solberg and Sébastien Loeb were separated by a single point and the championship was wide open!
Ultimately Petter Solberg beat Sébastien Loeb by a single point for a thrilling finale that went to the final stage here in Cardiff...
In another couple of months the World Rally will gear up again, and Wales will again be where the finale of the race will be held - so if you're into the World Rally, you know where to come!;-)
Whilst I did not see the race, it was brilliant watching the build up outside the Civic Centre where the cars underwent their final examinations and there was an opportunity to buy merchandise and tickets. Another great thing was seeing all the fans who had travelled from all over the world to be here and witness a great final.
Now that the Wales Assembly Government is the new event sponsor to 2006, the event has been re-titled Wales Rally GB to further raise the profile of Cardiff and Wales as a whole as hosts of this prestigious World Final...
Maybe I will go next time as I kind of wish that I had this time...
Equipment: Some of the World's most high performance vehicles
