Sounds good, going to try and find out a bit more about facilities, location, pubs etc, see if I can talk a few of my mates into going over for a weekend ....... next summer should be cracking, IOM TT, NW200, FOM and now the Welsh TT, :-D
It seems to be getting a lot of interest so far but I think it will be more of a clubmans introduction to road racing( hope I'm wrong in one respect but right in another) it won't be as exciting as the tt,nw, fom or Scarborough but road racing is road racing and it will get my backing, think its official name is the welsh road races and by the videos of the track it's a great start for the new comers to learn their trade but not sure it will attract the big names..again hope I'm wrong but hopefully see ya all there :D
Dean Harrison has signed up for it.
I think a lot of the riders you see at Scarborough will attend.

Hopefully it'll be a good place for newcomers to get the points and experience they need to compete in some of the bigger races, I agree, road racing is road racing and that has to be a good thing.

Looking at Trivago or Booking.com you may not have a huge choice.
Just book what you can.
We are only about 5 miles from the circuit at Defynnog. :thumb:

Looks good on paper, my concern's are marshalling and crowd control. With no barriers and unrestricted access " No ferry's to catch " it could get really silly the same way as the RAC rally did when the crowds spilt onto the track resulting in the biggest spectator event in the U/K being stopped. Fingers crossed everything will be fine and we can look forward to a fantastic event.

Chrissb6 I asked the guy on their stall at the Motorcycle Live this very question he said they are having spectator areas with arranged transport to each area, I'm guessing that means they'll work out the safest viewing spots & folks can't bimble about the course.
If it cant be fixed with a hammer you have an electrical problem

Sounds good on paper, trying to police that area going to take some resources. Law and order in this country is something of a grey area don't you think?! I can see green laners, ramblers + the daft lads not giving a blind Fck to the house rules.

Anybody know of any campsites in the area? Official campsite is for caravans/motor homes only.

There is a page now about official off-site camping at Llanwyrtd Wells.
Appears to be a few existing sites in the area aswell
http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/sites/resul ... unty=powys

Would think any shrewd landowners in the area would seize the chance to make a few quid by opening a temporary campsite for the weekend?

Confirmed now not going ahead... Gutted!
Important News
The directors of the Welsh Road Race regretfully announce the postponement of the 2018 Welsh Road Race. This is due to recent changes in legislation on the Road Traffic Act in Wales. A date for the 2019 event has already been requested and will be announced shortly.
On the 9th of January this year, there was a hearing with regard to the repeal of the Road Traffic Act. The repeal was to allow the use of closed Public Roads for Motorsport events. This repeal came into effect yesterday, on the 2nd February.

The Welsh Road Race had gained permissions previously, but the current change in legislation, has put the the timescale of the event into jeopardy, as there will not be enough time to obtain the correct permissions now to permit the event.

"We are working closely with the ACU, Crown Properties and Powys County Council to organise the Welsh Road Race, and under the new changes in legislation, the new deadlines that have been imposed, will make it very difficult to carry out a safe and successful event', said Derek Smith, Managing Director of the Welsh Road Race, " the Board of Directors are absolutely devastated, for all the supporters and all concerned with the event. We have began steps to contact all our supporters and sponsors who are involved in the event."

Paul King, Chairman of the ACU Road Race Committee said, "Following concerns raised with the Auto Cycle Union at the end of the year about the proposed Welsh Road Race in August 2018, Members of the ACU Road Race Committee recently met with the event organisers, to understand what was being proposed and what was required for the event to progress.

In order for the ACU Road Race Committee to sanction the event, a list of requirements required from the Organisers was agreed. It would appear that the timetable to achieve the event for 2018 cannot be achieved.

The ACU Road Race Committee will endeavour to assist the organisers in progressing the event for 2019."
