There are several venues in Wales, The original home of Welsh motorsport is Pembrey Circuit, found near the village of Pembrey in Carmarthenshire. This circuit hosted its first events back in 1981 and still hosts many events including cars, bikes, trucks and karts. Another great venue in Wales is Anglesey – a picturesque location on the west coast over-looking the Irish Sea and Snowdonia. The narrowest part of this circuit is 12 meters wide which makes this a superb track for cars, bikes and all abilities. The third main venue in Wales is the Llandow Circuit which is just 20 miles west of Cardiff. Llandow host a variety of events from Trackdays, Experience days and general Test days.
There is a large development in the pipeline – The Circuit of Wales, this Government and private funded project is for a race track and technology park and was originally scheduled to open in April 2016 but the project was put on hold whilst the Welsh Government are reviewing the planning application. Once complete, the venue will hope to host big events such as the MotoGP, Superbike World Championship, Motocross World Championship, British GT Championship, British Touring Car Championship and the World Touring Car Championship. This development would also bring in an estimated 750,000 visitors per year, create over 1,500 Training Places and add around £45,000,000 annually to the Welsh economy.
When residents of Wales attend a Premier Trackday event, a lot of people from the south will tend to travel to the Castle Combe Circuit in Chippenham, Wiltshire as it is easily reached via the M4 and if you continue down the M4 you would soon reach the Longcross Proving Ground in Chertsey, Surrey. Residents from central and northern Wales may find it easier to access a track in the Midlands such as Bruntingthorpe in Lutterworth, Leicestershire which is easily accessible from the M6 Motorway.
