Dayinsure to sponsor Oulton Park's Wales Rally GB stage

Tuesday, August 13 2019

Oulton Park's FIA World Rally Championship special stage on Thursday 3 October will be will be sponsored by established Wales Rally GB title partner Dayinsure.

Coming immediately after the Ceremonial Start on the waterfront in Liverpool, the newly renamed Dayinsure Oulton Park Stage will act as this year's event curtain-raiser, and will be a major highlight on the English side of the border before the WRC heads off to Welsh forests.

As the rally's opening speed test on Thursday evening, spectators will savour some spectacular action with the WRC stars and cars striving for an early advantage under the lights on a specially constructed course incorporating sections of the famous race circuit plus the venue's own rally track. The stage will also witness the welcome return of the Dayinsure Donut around which competitors will perform dramatic 360-degree spin-turns.

Moreover, with gates opening at 3pm, visitors of all ages will also be treated to some great afternoon entertainment in the build-up to the WRC's arrival.

Dayinsure will be hosting a special Family Zone providing a host of interactive attractions for both the young and the not so young.
 
Other festival attractions at Oulton Park will include stunt drivers, autograph sessions with past and present rally legends, big screens, pyrotechnics, commentary as well as an eye-catching display of historic rally cars to mark the event's 75th running. The Autocar 75th Rally GB showcase will feature cars as rallied in period by all the greats including multiple home winners Roger Clark, Richard Burns and Colin McRae.
 
Hugh Chambers, Chief Executive of Motorsport UK, organiser of Wales Rally GB, said: "Oulton Park is shaping up to be a really exceptional opening to the 2019 Wales Rally GB - even more so now, of course, with Dayinsure's very welcome return. With such great entertainment for all ages and interests on top of the extraordinary WRC action, we are expecting a large crowd as Oulton Park has great facilities and is within easy striking distance from cities such as Liverpool, Manchester and even Birmingham."
 
Based locally in Tarporley, Dayinsure is equally excited to be renewing its relationship with premier league World Championship rallying.
 
Barry Bown, Dayinsure Chief Operating Officer, said: "After three years as title partner of Wales Rally GB, rallying is very much in Dayinsure's DNA. The creation of this exciting new Dayinsure Oulton Park Special Stage not only provides us with a great opportunity to continue our productive association with the WRC but will also help us to further reinforce the many benefits offered by the online availability of increasingly popular short-term vehicle insurance - and Dayinsure as the go-to brand in that marketplace."
