Colin McCrae, Petter Solberg and Richard Burns are to name but a few of the professional legends who have driven the iconic forest stage.
More recently, the likes of Marcus Gronholm has used the venue for developing the Proton R5 as well as up and coming talent Osian Pryce, Tom Williams and current BRC Champion Matt Edwards for driver development and car set up.
We have several stage formats.
With Major sporting events cancelled or suspended due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the Forest Experience in Mid Wales will continue to stay open as much as possible. 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 return to the sport.
The Forest Experience has a long association of being the proven test venue for previous World Champions, Manufacturer and World Rally 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 Ultimate Forest Stage.
The 900 acre venue boasts some of the best forest roads in Europe. Owner and current competitor, Ross Leach, has taken great care through 2020 completely re-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.
There are a number of testing options for competitors at an extremely competitive rate . Customers using the Forest Experience venue will have free use of the facilities and one to one tuition is available on request, please see our Meet the team or call Hannah to discuss options. Testing 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."
