Another Mid Wales Road Racing Circuit

At the back end of 1968 the Royal Welsh Agricultural Society submitted plans to the local authority for the provision of a road racing circuit on the Llanelwedd showground site. Approval was also sought from the RAC and the ACU, the plans including a mile long spectator gallery. This was all reported in the December 30th 1968 edition of the Times newspaper. Great idea, what a shame it came to nought.

Fascinating snippet about the showground. Confirms my memory of seeing a plan of the proposed circuit.

Also seem to remember a Wales Today film of renowned TT rider Malcolm Uphill assessing the possibility of a race circuit around Llandod lake.
