The top three finishers in the 2021 Roger Albert Clark Rally (25-29 November) will take part in a parade around the famous Carmarthen Velodrome after the finish of the rally.

After five days of fierce competition in the forests of England, Scotland and Wales, the rally will finish in Carmarthen as it makes its first visit to the south-west Wales town. There will be a ceremonial finish in the centre of Carmarthen from around 4pm on Monday 29 November.

Following the ceremonial finish, the top three overall crews will move to the nearby velodrome for a lap of honour, completing three laps of the 400m banked concrete velodrome in formation. It is hoped that other finishers will also be able to complete a lap of honour on the 22-degree banked circuit.

The famous Carmarthen Velodrome is the centre-piece of Carmarthen Park and was officially opened on Easter Monday, 1900. It is believed to be the oldest out-door concrete velodrome in continuous use in the world and is an important centre for cycling in the region.

Rally manager Colin Heppenstall said: “A lap of honour around the Velodrome will be a great finish to the rally. The venue is very suitable for spectators and it should look really good! It will be a slow speed parade under floodlights. The Park is also the setting for the holding control before the cars go to the ceremonial finish in the town centre, so rally cars will be arriving at the Velodrome from around 3.15pm on Monday afternoon.”
