Very few surprises were contained within the entry list for Wales Rally GB, penultimate round of the 2016 world championship.  

Elfyn Evans has been entered in an R5 car in Rally GB.There are 16 World Rally Cars and 21 entries in WRC2, but out of the 66 entries only 21 are non championship drivers.

These include a Citroen WRC prize drive for Quentin Gilbert, and sadly only an R5 prize drive for national champion Elfyn Evans, who had hoped for a WRC drive.  

Shortage of available current specification World Rally Cars at M-Sport is the reason, and notably there is no entry for Henning Solberg.  

Wales sees the WRC return for Stephane Lefebvre after his accident in Germany, but with a new co-driver, Gilles de Turckhein.  

Compensation for spectators will be the 82 entries in the national category event, in an eclectic selection of rally cars, including 2-litre World Rally Cars banned in the world championship.
