The Celtic Manor Resort, host venue for the 2010 Ryder Cup, welcomes top drivers of another kind when it plays host to an all-new special stage of Wales Rally GB in September.

Eight-time World Rally Champion Sebastién Loeb, and his fellow WRC stars, will descend on the resort on the evening of Saturday, 15th September, for some thrilling twilight rallying.

Spectators will enjoy superb views from elevated viewing banks as a full field of WRC cars compete on service roads alongside the award-winning 2010 Ryder Cup course.  

Clubhouse hospitality packages are also available, which include balcony views of the start line, a three-course dinner with wine and the option to add on a night’s luxury accommodation in the five-star Resort Hotel.

Celtic Manor Resort Chief Executive Dylan Matthews said: “We are delighted to welcome another world-class sporting event to Celtic Manor. Wales Rally GB has been one of the biggest events on the Welsh sporting calendar for a number of years and it is great to be hosting a special stage here for the first time.”
