Test Day - Bont Tarmac Stage
Slip&Grip Automotive are now responsible for testing at Bonts 2.2 mile tarmac stage in Mid Wales (SY25 6BJ). Its an ideal venue for pre-event or pre-season testing for rally cars, sprint or hill climb cars. The stage has several layouts that can be determined or adjusted depending on the crews needs on that day. Bont boasts some of the most challenging single venue tarmac in the UK and makes for the perfect proving ground for those who compete on tarmac rallies all over Europe. The venue has no noise limits and has a sufficiently sized tarmac paddock for crews to work on cars.
To kick things off we will be offering one day a month at the venue but if you wish to hire the stage for a group of cars to test in private that can be arranged on a date that suits you by contacting us direct. Testing restrictions will be based on current Welsh COVID guidelines so may incur restrictions on number of persons per crew, total number at the venue and PPE to be worn. Club level and professional teams are welcome. The venue is also available for video and media use if required
