Wales Rally GB Sunday Service

This November will play host to one of our largest and most dramatic Sunday Services ever as PistonHeads has partnered with both Wales Rally GB and Conwy County Borough Council to offer our members a unique introduction to the world of rallying.

Dating back to its humble beginnings in 1932, when it was originally referred to as the RAC Rally, the fast, tight forest stages of Wales Rally GB are now an integral part of the WRC circuit. Many of the world's greatest drivers have taken victory over the four-day event, including Colin McRae and Richard Burns, who both won three times.

From November 12-15, the Welsh countryside will be turned onto one of the most gruelling and technically demanding stages in the WRC. Starting from Llandudno, the rally will include 19 competitive stages, two of which are night time runs, before finishing at the service park at Deeside on the Sunday afternoon.

PistonHeads has been offered exclusive access for 300 members to park on the promenade in Llandudno for our Sunday Service on November 15. We have private use of the Menai Suite at St. George's Hotel for our obligatory, reasonably priced, and some might say medicinal, bacon sandwich and hot drink upon arrival.

During the morning there will be a Q&A session with a rally legend (that will remain a surprise just for now) and we'll be showing exclusive footage from Friday's stages in the Suite. All this just a stone's throw from the town centre where the official rally re-group will take place from 1030h on Sunday with live footage of the rally being shown on large screens.

Also in attendance, fresh from their high speed demo runs on the Great Orme stage, will be the members of Slowly Sideways, who will be joining us for the morning talking about their passion for the sport and the cars.

We know that attending this event may require some pre-planning and organising for those of you travelling some distance, so we have a couple of links to make this easier: see here to view and book accommodation in the area and here to download our beginners guide to rallying.

Furthermore, if you wish to include the Sunday Service as part of a full Wales Rally GB weekend, tickets are still available. See the website for more details.

We will also be selling T-shirts, mugs and stickers at this Sunday Service. It's cash only, so come prepared with some extra pennies to grab yourself some merchandise! As the event is raising money for the Wales Air Ambulance so any donations you can provide during the day would be greatly appreciated too.

    For those of you wanting to avoid a super-early start for the trip Oop-North, some of the PH team will be staying locally on the Saturday night - it would be great to meet some of you for a drink or two if any one fancies it? Details for this will follow in due course, but it will be in Llandudno and will be very informal.

    Hope to see lot of you there (on the Saturday and Sunday!)

    Sounds like you need to do some cancelling then!

    idea Would you like PH to write you a letter explaining why you can no longer be at the "other things"? hehe

    Yes!! Been waiting for an event near me. Hopefully the weather will be decent and will allow a detour via the Evo Triangle on the way home...
