Winding along gravel roads criss-crossing 1600 hectares of forest, I pull my car to a stop in the heart of Walters Arena, the rally stage and test venue half an hour north east of Swansea, Wales, and pinch myself. Through the windscreen I can see a Subaru Legacy RS, and Impreza and Focus World Rally Cars, all bearing the surname McRae on their back windows. But that’s not why I pinch myself; I’m in Wales and it isn’t raining, foggy or freezing cold. Hallelujah!
