Sweet Lamb is one of the best places to watch a rally car in Great Britain. Located just off the A44 in Powys, Mid Wales, the rally testing facility offers brilliant viewing for spectators.

The site contains hundreds of rally ready gravel tracks, and is centred around a natural bowl which contains a series of jumps and a water splash. Fans can line the hillside and watch the rally cars tackle a series of challenges. It's an ideal venue, which is why Wales Rally GB chiefs have made it one of the designated fan friendly 'Rally Fest' stages on this year's event.

You could spend the day at Sweet Lamb and watch the World Rally Championship crews tackle the stage twice, the supporting National field run through once - and then take in a series of displays and trade stands.

There's only one relatively modern problem with Sweet Lamb: it's pretty much impossible to get a mobile phone signal up there. And while being out of contact can be a relaxing experience, it does make it quite hard to follow the progress of the rally. So the first most of the spectators at Sweet Lamb knew of Robert Kubica's dramatic roll on the day's opening stage was when he didn't turn up in the spectator bowl when he should have.
