Again the longest of the Rally and the reverse of last year's stage running over the classic open Kielder roads. Very fast, curving route with deep ditches to test the drivers to their limits. The supreme test of man and machine with the later part of the field running in darkness. Also used by the Leeds-RAC International Historic Rally with the stage split into two (Chirdonhead and Pundershaw) with the cars starting at 11:13 and 11:48. Location: 3 miles west of Bellingham.
Car parks: All on forest roads except for car park G which is in a field near the middle of the stage.
Fact file: length of the two stages in 1995 - 36.61 miles. Fastest time 31 mins 36 secs (Sainz). Colin McRae lost the lead here last year due to a puncture.
