In the early 00's a great thing happened in Mid Wales, not far from Tregaron. A group of locals, a land owner and the local council got together to create the most unique asphalt venue in the UK, Bont Dolebolion Rally Stage. With a grant from the government and hard graft from locals, 2.2 miles of twisting rally stage was laid using materials from the local quarry visible from Bont itself.
The last 20 years it has seen many local clubs using the venue for night events but it was not very well known UK wide. Slip&Grip Automotive is now in its 2nd year of sole management of this stunning venue and welcomes people from all over the continent to test and compete. The stage hosts monthly public rally testing for club level drivers on a budget as well as the ability to private hire the venue for those who compete at the top of the sport and prefer seclusion when shaking down vehicles, or for companies to carry out product testing or media days for marketing.
The challenging 2.2mile stage has a good sized paddock and sits in stunning Welsh countryside. Sitting on the side of a mountain it boasts tight tarmac, crests and undulations much like crews would find on tarmac rallies throughout Europe. With a cut through section to start another run, the layout means crews can tailor their runs to the sort of miles they would usually do on a single stage.
