The first Stage for the Wales Rally GB 2017 will be created at the Tir Prince Raceway in Towyn complete with jump and donut, to begin three days of unmissable World Rally Championship action. This thrilling new addition to the three-day itinerary will feature a 1.1-mile (1.7km) floodlit course incorporating parts of Tir Prince's trotting track and other areas within the park.
This Visit Conwy Special Stage at Tir Prince will be an amazing opportunity for the north Wales public to see these amazing new WRC cars in action. In addition, fans will be treated to a full evening of exhilarating car-themed entertainment with autograph sessions, interviews, commentary, big screens, dedicated trackside viewing areas, catering, a funfair, merchandise shopping and much, much more.
And, to provide fans with some dramatic opening night entertainment, the Visit Conwy Tir Prince stage will feature two dramatic jumps. These will see the latest generation of more powerful World Rally Cars flying through the air as hard-charging drivers race to gain an early advantage over their adversaries.
As a mouthwatering taste of what is to follow, a crowd-pleasing one-mile course has been designed to include a slalom section and hairpin, as well as the two eye-catching jumps.
Competitors will first complete one high-speed lap of the Tir Prince trotting track - more traditionally used for horse racing - before tackling a tricky section set out in an adjoining area. Special viewing areas have been created and big screens installed, guaranteeing visitors do not miss any of the high-octane action.
