2014 Wales Rally GB set for full capacity entry list

by Vince Pettit

The season finale of the 2014 FIA World Rally Championship will feature a maximum capacity field of 160 cars ready to do battle through the Welsh forests.

A total of 72 teams representing 26 nations will line up for the 23 stages of the Wales Rally GB, this is alongside 88 crews competing in the National event, which will be run immediately after the WRC cars complete the same timed stages.

“This is great news on many levels,” said Ben Taylor, Managing Director of Wales Rally GB.

“We set out to create a great sporting spectacle and a fitting finale to the FIA World Rally Championship – to have this full-capacity entry is a major component in achieving those two goals.

“It underlines the event’s massive appeal both at home and abroad, but it’s also fantastic news for the fans who will be treated to some truly memorable top class action.”

While Sébastien Ogier continues to lead the way in the championship there will be two front-running British stars with Elfyn Evans lining up for M-Sport World Rally Team and Kris Meeke on driving duties for Citroen Total Abu Dhabi WRT.

Other British interest comes from Matthew Wilson who makes a welcome return with M-Sport while multiple Scottish Rally Champion David Bogie lines up alongside two Welsh stars Tom Cave and Osian Pryce.

A comprehensive ‘Rally Planner’ guide for spectators can be found on-line via the official www.walesrallygb.com website which also has full ticketing information. Tickets are also available via the ticket hotline on 0844 847 2251.
