2013 WRC Rally GB itinerary confirmed, three night stages included

The event is based on Deeside and runs through the forests of north and mid-Wales.

Qualifying for the event will take place at Llandegla, 25 miles away from Deeside, while a second run through Clocaenog provides Sunday's powerstage on the November 14-17 rally.

As expected, a Conwy Castle start is a precursor to three night time stages.

Friday is the Hafren, Sweet Lamb, Myherin loop, serviced remotely from Newtown.

Saturday provides an interesting twist, with Dyfi and Gartheiniog run twice and Dyfnant once, but without service. The liaison section back to Deeside then includes two laps of the Chirk Castle stage.

The cars will arrive in service at the end of the leg at 1536, one of the earliest arrival times on the Saturday leg of a WRC for years.

Sunday provides a second run at Dyfnant, Penllyn and Clocaenog, before Kinmel Park twice and the Great Orme. The finish will be at 1330 in Llandudno.
