The Circuit of Wales has been on the cards for a while; however it seems to be moving a step closer with the developers of the track signing a deal for the British MotoGP to be held at the track. This should have a considerable beneficial impact for the construction industry in Wales as well as the wider UK.

Although the deal has been signed 2015’s race will be held at another venues with a view to the Circuit of Wales (close to Ebbw Vale) hosting the event in 2016.

Local Civil Engineering firm Alun Griffiths (Contractors) had been due to start work on the track along with Spanish construction giant FCC however delays have come about due to significant problems at the planning stage.

The initial stage of the development will include the 3.5-mile race track, hotel and a commercial and retail complex in a move that should see international motorsports events flock to the Welsh site.
