Welsh Roadrace OFF!
« on: 09 February, 2018, 10:52:45 AM »
Bollox  :232:  welshroadrace.com Just found out that the 2day event in Wales is cancelled due to changes in legislation for road use.  My son bought me a grandstand ticket for Xmas and was looking forward to riding down there as hopefully I'll have my license back.  Having been to TT twice years ago, I know what a buzz I get watching the top riders really ride way beyond my abilities. I plan on touring Wales when I get my TS around May if all goes well so I'll have to look at the bits of the circuit I can as some is MOD ground so not accessible by public.

Its pretty much all MOD ground, I go up there every now and then for work and have been round most of it at one time or another.  Also quite interesting and a bit hidden near by is the German Village built by the army for training.

Are you able to get on what would be the circuit or where you there just because you were working there? I'd like to at least see some of it.

I thought it was cancelled due to too short a time scale to organize for this year,
tried to find the MCN article???
shame as I thought it would be a good weekend away

Yes, see the video above, as Plater says its all public roads, though It is possible for some parts to get closed when the army have a large training manoeuvre but I dont think that happens often

Thanks, the article seems to indicate that it could still go ahead just not this year, citing time scale,
