The Pembrey rallycross circuit could undergo further significant changes as early as next season.
The circuit introduced a revised loose section for 2017, but manager Phil Davies has plans to move the rallycross circuit completely to the Eastern end of the venue, including the start-line and asphalt sections, to improve spectator viewing.
Currently, rallycross races use the circuit racing start-line, out of sight from the majority of spectators.
“My plan is to have a better start and finish area, so spectators can get closer to the action. We’ve got high banks in the Eastern bowl, so it would make it quite interesting,” said Davies. “We’d have to put in temporary race control and timing buildings, but that’s all possible.”
Motorsport News understands that the start-line could be located around the paddock crossing area, which would allow races to be formed in a pre-grid on the race circuit behind, meaning events could run more efficiently.
Using the existing asphalt, the circuit could rejoin the loose section at the Woodlands corner, while the joker lap is expected to be located on the infield.
“The Tarmac might be a bit quick, so we may need to slow that down a bit. I think it would work well in the reverse direction too,” added Davies. “I’d like to see if we can get it done for next year. We need to discuss it with the licensing body, the MSA and hopefully crack on.”
