Pembrey Circuit reveals new track layouts for 2017 - News

Exciting times for the home of Welsh Motorsport and great news for Car Track Days customers, with Pembrey Circuit announcing that work has begun on new track layouts for the 2017 season.

The circuit, which has been run in conjunction with the British Automobile Racing Club since 1990, have said the new layouts will "add yet more challenges to competitors who test and race, and further spectacle for those in attendance."

In years gone by Pembrey has seen a number of now World-class talents take to the track, with former Formula 1 World Champion Jenson Button, as well as current Team Ferrari driver Kimi Räikkönen and Team Red Bull prodigy Max Verstappen all gaining experience at the historic circuit.

Work on the new track layouts has been ongoing since the back end of 2016 and will allow for more than one layout to be used over any given weekend, offering ample opportunity for more track action at Pembrey than ever before.

One of the features of the new circuit layout is a heavy breaking section that will be followed by high speed right hand corners, testing not only the ability of the vehicles on track, but also the ability of racers and riders.

Pembrey have also revealed work on an alternative layout along the back straight, before the Honda Curve, although plans for this have yet to be finalised, with more news on this expected in the next fortnight.

BARC Chief Operating Officer, Drew Furlong, has this to say: "As a club we are always looking to move forward and that goes for our venues too. Pembrey has continued to grow over the past few years and these developments are the next stage in moving forward. With the likes of the British Rallycross Championship and other series all consistently visiting the circuit, these changes are set to not only attract them back, but also to entice new championships to visit."

And in-depth look at the work currently under way at Pembrey can be seen in Overdrive and Driven International's YouTube video below.

Visit our Pembrey Track Days page on the TrackDays website today to find all our up to date information about the new layout when it arrives.
