Pembrey Circuit has continued its preparations ahead of motor racing’s return to South Wales by completing the build of a brand new garage complex.
In what is a milestone year as the venue celebrates its 30th Anniversary of being associated with the British Automobile Racing Club, the picturesque track has been a hive of activity.
Despite the global coronavirus pandemic having prevented any race meetings from taking place so far this year, plenty of work has happened behind the scenes.
Situated down the pit lane next to the circuit’s control tower, the new complex is comprised of 12 double garages with capacity to hold 24 cars. In addition, vast paddock space behind the garages will also prove beneficial for competitors, spectators and customers.
Away from the track, further improvements have been made around the venue, including upgrades to the toilet facilities in the paddock.
Phil Davies, Pembrey Circuit Manager, said: “These past few months have been a testing time for everyone but I’m delighted that we have been able to come out the other side in an even stronger position.
“Whilst we haven’t been able to stage motorsport events or welcome spectators, we have been able to continue with our planned improvements to the venue and built our new garage complex.
“I personally think the new garages look fantastic and they are a welcome addition. They will significantly improve the experience for competitors and spectators alike.
“We are working closely with the Welsh Government and Carmarthenshire County Council and we are hopeful that we will be able to open our doors and stage top-draw motorsport in the coming months.”
Pembrey is scheduled to play host to its first race meeting since the UK’s lockdown on August 8/9 when the Autosport International BTRDA Clubmans Rallycross Championship in association with Cooper Tires speeds into Wales.
At this moment, all dates and events remain provisional and subject to change whilst spectators are currently not permitted to attend.
