Wales Rally GB rally 'reinvigorated' after move north

The Wales Rally GB gets under way on Thursday with a new home in north Wales, and high hopes that the competition will be reinvigorated.

The final event of the World Rally Championship season has moved from its previous base in Cardiff to Flintshire, which includes a service site and public viewing area next to the Toyota factory in Deeside.

The rally will see 160 high-performance cars and their drivers stretched to the limits by the forests of Snowdonia, Denbighshire and mid Wales.

A ceremony in Conwy will mark the rally's start before special stages held in three pitch-black forests.

Chris Dearden reports.
