Alternative shakedown stage for Wales Rally GB confirmed

The shakedown stage for Wales Rally GB has been moved from Margam Park, near Port Talbot, to the Barrage in Cardiff Bay and will run from 19.00 until 22.00 on Wednesday 10th November.

Shakedown was originally scheduled to run from 08.00 to 12.00 on Thursday 11th.

The change of venue and time has been made by the rally organisers in a bid to further reduce the spread of the ongoing infection of trees in Margam Forest by 'Phytophthora ramorum' (P. ramorum).

Fans holding a World Rally Pass or Thursday Day Pass will be granted access to Shakedown in Cardiff Bay on the Wednesday evening. Gates will open at 18:30 for a 19:00 start and Shakedown will finish at 22:00. Please note there will be no access to the site from 21:30.

The location of spectator Car Park 'L' in Resolfen forest will also be moved as an additional bio-security measure.

Further information will released as soon as possible on the Wales Rally GB website: www.walesrallygb.com

No other stages or venues on the rally are affected.
