The Wales Rally GB is the British round of the World Rally Championship (WRC) that takes place in Wales, usually in mid-November. It requires a small army of marshals to run it. This offers an unparalleled opportunity to get involved in the heart of rallying at the highest level, without needing to be the world's best rally driver or to have a multi-million pound sponsorship deal.

CCC has for many years run time controls at the start and finish of the forest stages - in 2010 we were running the arrival and start at Radnor, and the finish and stop at Margam Park. In previous years we have directed the worlds' media towards Luis Moya's infamous "helmet through the rear window" incident, and told off Valentino Rossi for being too fast on an access road! 

Right: Petter Solberg (with back to camera) chatting to CCC marshals at the "shakedown" stage of Rally GB in 2003. This is an untimed stage the day before the rally starts that competitors are free to use as a final test session. Petter went on to win the Rally and with it his one World Championship title. CCC was right there too, running the finish of the final stage where his title was won.

The 2011 Rally took us to three great stages; the start at Great Orme, and flying finish and finish respectively at Dyfi East and Sweet Lamb. Some pictures from the Great Orme on that rally are below.
 
CCC will return to Wales to run stage start and finish controls again next October.
