SS18: Alwen 1, 10.41km
Alwen is quite different in nature to other Rally GB tests, with plenty of long straights leading into square junctions. It is wide and fast and forest work has removed trees, which increases the visibility for drivers but also makes the roads harder to read. The surface is smooth and compact.

SS19: Brenig 1, 6.43km

The Estonian quickly shattered any thoughts second-placed Neuville may have had of closing the overnight 11.0sec deficit by winning the 10.41km Alwen stage in his Yaris.

Rough sea conditions meant rally organisers were unable to deploy divers in the safety boat below the huge drops from the cliffs above.

The main focus through the tests was on the battle for fifth between Elfyn Evans and Andreas Mikkelsen, who were blanketed by just 4.5sec overnight.

With the cancellation of Great Orme, a second pass through Alwen and Brenig is all that remains ahead of the afternoon’s finish ceremony in Llandudno.
