Test Weekend Bont Tarmac Stage
Slip&Grip Automotive are now responsible for all testing at Bont Dolebolion 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. We would usually run our timed rally sprint on this date (another two later in the year) however with it looking like numbers of people at events will be restricted it make more sense for us to host limited number testing over two days instead. You are welcome to just attend the one day or both days and each day is limited to just 9 cars with the people permitted per car. The stage has several layouts that can be determined or adjusted depending on the crews needs on that day. For this weekend its likely we would run one route on the Saturday and an alternative on the Sunday. 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 and remain COVID safe.
We run one set test 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. 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.
