Road to Wales scheme back for another year

The organisers of Wales Rally GB have confirmed the continuation of the widely praised Road to Wales scheme for 2015.

The organisers of Wales Rally GB have confirmed the continuation of the widely praised Road to Wales scheme for 2015.

Introduced in 2013, the programme rewards Britainâ??s best rallying talent with free entries into the season-ending Wales Rally GB (November 12 to 15), providing them with an amazing opportunity to compete against the sportâ??s elite on the world stage.



The Road to Wales prize roster offered no fewer than 11 free entries into last yearâ??s over-subscribed Wales Rally GB. Six of these were awarded to front-runners from various classes in the 2014 MSA British Rally Championship, the remaining five to the winners of the UKâ??s premier national rally championships.



With the BRC taking a brief sabbatical in 2015, those entries have now been transferred to six of the individual rounds that featured on the 2014 BRC calendar: Pirelli Carlisle Rally; Rally North Wales; Rally Isle of Man; RSAC Scottish Rally; Ulster Rally and Jim Clark Rally. Organisers of these events have set up their own selection criteria for the allocation of the Road to Wales prizes.



Ben Taylor, managing director of Wales Rally GB, said: â??The Road to Wales has proved to be a huge success and we had no hesitation in continuing the initiative in 2015. Wales Rally GB needs to be not only the climax of the WRC, but also a fantastic end-of-season festival to celebrate the very best of British rallying and the Road to Wales makes sure some of this countryâ??s best will be on the stages in November.â?�
