The 2006 Wales Rally GB was the final round of the 2006 World Rally Championship season. It took place between December 1–3, 2006.
This was the first Wales Rally GB since beloved Welsh navigator Michael Park lost his life at last year's ill-fated event. Fortunately enough, there was no death or tragedy at the 2006 Rally GB.
Marcus Grönholm won for the third time in four rallies but Loeb had accumulated such a huge point lead before Turkey that Grönholm's failure to finish third or better in Australia handed Loeb the 2006 championship crown by one point. He received the news at home via an Internet video link to the rally HQ. Due to the time difference, he made do with early morning coffee instead of the customary champagne, calling the whole experience "strange".
