WRC Wales Raly GB

So, who if anybody is going to see the rally this weekend, raise thy hand.
Well..?
Guess that's just me then for the moment.
My car is packed with a double summer quit, double winter quilt, winter sleeping bag and thermals to brim. My food consists of beans, beans, beans and more beans, with some sausages, meetballs and a few other bits, so god help anybody that decides to join me between stages.
Digital camera in hand, laptop, spare batteries and a 3G modem on loan, I'm set to get some photos up from each leg.
Not due to meet up with anybody until I arrive at Parc Fermé at Swansea Waterfront, so going to be a lonely night tonight after my 100 mile drive due to commence in a little over one hour.
So is anybody going and which Supe Stages do you have planned?
For me it's Sweet Lamb tonight, Parc Fermé in the evening, Halfway on Friday which is my favourate spot up on Dixies (the scene of some very similar antics to Sirty Sanchez involving some lads from Swansea), the Millenium Stadium in the evening and on to Walters Arena for Sundays final bout.

Basically, if you see Phil, don't get in his car Tongue

Only need a route to the main roads near, know where I am going from there and the tracks themselves are pretty much see what's best when there.

Re: WRC Wales Raly GB

So, it's been interesting, if not just a tad bit... make that very very cold.
Got some photos online, but the sun isn't the simplest to manage sat in the car, so can't touch up the rest till I get home later tonight.
Time to get some lunch and make my way towards Cardiff for the ceremonial finish.
