That is what I thought, DVT, but I am certainly not paying £38 plus parking.

Btw, I asked this question to Wales Rally GB over the weekend via Messenger.

Somebody has seen my message but did not reply.

I have since sent a reminder and again someone has seen it but not replied.

I also enquired where I can buy a programme !!

Needless to say I am not impressed.

Considering how long it takes any contractors in town you have to be impressed by the Hyundai World Rally Team Service building that takes up the whole of the Mostyn Broadway Coach Park ... a couple of days and you have this.  Planning permission? - probably not as it's temporary.

Very impressive, DVT.

I understand next year the event will be staged 1st-4th November.

I hope the closing of roads in 2020 will not clash with the town’s annual firework display because if it does then it could be a major problem in and around town.

Bri ... the date I have seen is for 2020 is Sunday (final day) November 1st, so it will run October 29th to November 1st.  Could combine the firework display with it !!!

We've worked out that my son is this years' competitor living closest to Rally HQ - he lives in Rhos-on-Sea, so should have no excuse in not turning up on time for their Friday morning start (just after 9am, as they are car 239 in the National section, with the first National runner starting at 8.30am.

My apologies, DVT.

When I saw this yesterday, I naturally assumed it will start on the 1 November 2020.

I guess your son only races in the GB one?

Yes, that's the list I've seen as well but in discussion with rally people last night it seems that the date is the final day!

This week is the first WRC event my son has contested, albeit in the National section.  He started navigating on night road rallies at age of 14 years and 2 days which, at the time (1994), made him the youngest ever navigator (minimum age has since been reduced from 14 to 12).  Did quite a few events about 15 years ago, including the Cambrian a few times and other similar status forest events, plus quite a few of the single-venue rallies (such as those at Anglesey Circuit).  Hadn't done much for a few years until asked to team up with the Wirral driver he's with this week, this will be their fourth rally together, only one finish so far.

The young lad injured in the accident last year, is up and about, but a long road ahead ............

Family of bike fanatic Riley Dexter is making 'amazing progress' and is back walking - albeit stability issues
A COURAGEOUS Junior British champion who suffered life-changing injuries after a crash is on the road to recovery - 12 months on.

Riley Dexter, now eight, was involved in an accident in Llandudno.
This was at the Wales Rally GB in October 2018. He was severely hurt after his bike and another collided on the promenade.

The determined bike fanatic, who was performing as part of the Supermoto UK team, sustained injuries including a broken femur, a fractured skull and an acquired brain injury.

These have affected the Sheffield youngster’s abilities including walking, balancing, memory, thought process and speech.

Yes, I did.

The Honda cars that are usually parked in VC have been over in B&Q for the past few days but yesterday they emptied their showroom to allow for scrutiny of all the rally cars.

The general public are also allowed inside the car showroom and the Honda staff, yesterday, made us feel very welcome with offers of complimentary tea, coffee and cold drinks.
