Testing and Venue Hire

The Forest Experience Launches the Unlimited Mileage and Exclusive Test Experience.

With Major sporting events cancelled or suspended due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the Forest Experience in Mid Wales is launching the Gold Test Package for Summer 2020*. This will allow members of the Motorsport community to hit the ground running once the Covid-19 outbreak subsides. Teams and privateers can develop their cars, driver skills and importantly keep sponsors happy in this secluded and remote part of Wales during their long awaited second part of their season.

The Forest Experience has a long association of being the proven test venue for previous World Champions and Works manufacturer teams. Rally legends such as Colin McCrae and Richard Burns to modern day celebrities Sigala, John Newman and even "Rob Stark" (Richard Madden) have experienced the refined Forest Experience stage.

The 900 acre venue boasts some of the best forest roads in Europe. Owner and current competitor, Ross Leach, has taken great care over the past 12 months grading the stage to ensure the quality of the road. The facility is equipped with covered areas for set up changes and a classroom and catering facility.

The Gold Test Package invites teams or individuals to have a full days testing exclusively for £700 plus VAT with only £150 plus VAT per extra car**. Customers will have free use of the facilities to capitalise on the enforced break between rallies due to the unforeseen Coronavirus outbreak. Prices vary for R5 and WRC cars**

British Rally Driver and Proton Test Driver Ollie Mellors says "As a test facility it had been everything we have needed throughout the development of the Proton Iriz R5 with a variety of well-maintained roads to use, it has helped to keep a base when making changes to know if we were moving in the right direction. All the team up at the Forest Experience have always gone above and beyond to help and work with us to ensure we get everything we need from our time testing, a highly recommended facility for all ranges of competitors."
