Pembrey 2014– Plethora of on-track racing and rallying activity to whet fans’ appetite
– Flat-out two-wheeled and four-wheeled action set to wow spectators season-long
– Highlights include British Truck Racing Championship, British Rallycross Championship and Welsh Vintage Extravaganza

Welsh motor sport aficionados are in for an exciting season ahead after the nation’s leading circuit unveiled its fast-and-furious 2014 calendar – with plenty to keep car, bike and truck fans entertained from lights-out to chequered flag.

Classic Motorcycle Road Racing is set to rev proceedings into life over the Easter weekend, with the popular Hottrax Motorsport Championship paying a visit a fortnight later for the third round of its 2014 campaign.

Next up is the heavyweight power and thunder of the British Truck Racing Championship – a motor racing spectacle like no other, with a cacophony of 12-litre, 1,000bhp trucks that would see off no less than a Porsche 911 in a 0-100mph duel getting ready to rumble around Pembrey’s spectator-friendly layout. And just to prove that you can never have too much of a good thing, the trucks will return at the beginning of October.

Rallycross is one of the incontestable buzzwords in the motor sport world in 2014, and the British Rallycross Championship will stop off at BARC-managed Pembrey at the end of July, rolling the very best aspects of circuit racing and rallying into one neat, bite-sized and irresistibly entertaining package.

The Welsh Vintage Extravaganza will host a celebration of the sights, sounds and smells of yesteryear over the August Bank Holiday weekend, whilst the Kidwelly M.C. Targa Rally, Welsh Championship Tarmac Rally, Llanelli Motor Club Road Rally and C.M.C. Christmas Tarmac Rally Stages ensure rallying fans enjoy an autumn bonanza with an event a month from September to December.

Other notable fixtures include the British Sprint Championship, Clubmans Rallycross, BARC Race Day (Cars), NG Motorcycle Road Racing, UK Open Drift Championship and C.M.C. Christmas Tarmac Rally Stages. Pembrey Circuit Manager Phil Davies is confident that there really is something for everybody at the Carmarthenshire track in 2014.

“Welsh motor sport is very much in the ascendancy in 2014, with the revitalised Wales Rally GB, Elfyn Evans flying the flag on the international rallying scene and Chaz Davies leading the charge on the World Superbike stage,” he said. “There is so much to celebrate, and we believe that here at Pembrey, we have the perfect line-up of events to appeal to fans across the motor sport spectrum.

“Whether you’re a lover of cars, bikes or trucks, racing or rallying, classic or cutting-edge, we have something for everybody at Pembrey in 2014 and are tremendously excited about the season ahead. So what are you waiting for? Come along and see what it’s all about!”
