2009 Rally of Great Britain is officially launched!

Posted on



The 2009 Rally of Great Britain, one of the UK's biggest motorsport events, popular for its high octane action set in the infamously unforgiving Welsh forests, has now been launched.


The event, which takes place from 22 - 25 October, is the final round of the World Rally Championship and could see the making of this year's Champion. This year, for the first time, the Service Park will be in the Welsh capital, in Cardiff Bay. Free of charge to enter, it will give everyone a chance to get up close to the action.


Tickets are now on sale, with last year's popular 'kids for a quid' offer extended to include more of the event than ever before, making it a perfect family activity. Once again, all ticket prices remain low, starting from just £1 for child day passes. A World Rally Pass (WRP) represents the best value for money, for adults wanting to soak up all the action. The pass will give access to all stages and car parks and shakedown. Organisers have worked hard to keep prices low and at £90 the WRP remains the same price it has been for the past five years - a rare phenomenon in the sporting world.


Also available is a huge range of hospitality packages at extremely competitive prices, designed to suit small or large businesses and rally fans alike. Each package is designed to bring guests closer to the action in exclusive surroundings. Bespoke packages can also be created to include almost anything from hotels to helicopter rides, making the Rally of Great Britain experience truly unique.


This year's event will have a new twist, with Rally HQ and the Service Park based entirely in Cardiff, making it extremely convenient for fans wanting to experience all the action. The Service Park, which will be based in Cardiff Bay, can be reached easily from the city centre by bus, foot or train. Entry to the Service Park is free and will give visitors the chance to meet the teams and experience the full rally atmosphere. Visitors can also enjoy the entertainment and catering available at the Service Park, which is itself surrounded by some of Cardiff's best bars and restaurants.


An added bonus this year will be the return of the Remote Service Park in Builth Wells. Set in the midst of the Mid Wales stages, it will give fans the chance to experience a service park right at the heart of the rally and really see what goes on behind the scenes. It will be an absolute must see for serious rally fans and is an added bonus for World Rally Pass holders.


To take advantage of the best ticket prices advance booking is essential. Details of how to purchase tickets together with other important news is available by visiting
