The bond between Wales Rally GB and Welsh educational establishments has been further strengthened following confirmation that official scrutineering for the final round of this year’s FIA World Rally Championship will be performed at Coleg Cambria Deeside.


As well as being located near the  WRC Rally Service Park which is being built alongside the Toyota hybrid engine factory in Deeside industrial park, the College’s Vehicle Maintenance Workshops are fully equipped with no fewer than eight vehicle lifts.

This will ensure that the scrutineers have all the required facilities to check that the cars competing in both International and National Rallies conform to the FIA’s strict technical regulations.

Maximising the opportunity, students will be actively encouraged to engage with the World Rally Championship’s presence inside the College. A special viewing area will be available for them within the workshop while Engineering and other interested students will be provided with special insights into what’s one of the world’s most exciting and technically advanced sports.

Marshall Clayton, Coleg Cambria Deputy Director of Engineering and Automotive said:

“We are delighted to be hosting the scrutineering for Wales Rally GB in our automotive workshops. It will be a great opportunity for our students and staff to be involved in such a prestigious event.”

Staging the official scrutineering at Coleg Cambria is the latest in a series of educational initiatives being introduced to capitalise on Wales Rally GB.

A special Industry Awareness event is being organised at the WRC Rally Service Park providing students with the opportunity to find out more about design, manufacturing and technology while a rally-based design competition is open to all secondary schools and colleges throughout Wales.
