On 5 December 2013, Heads of the Valleys Development Company held its first 'Meet the Buyer' day for local sub-contractor and supplier companies to find out about opportunities to work with the construction partners tasked with delivering the £280m Circuit of Wales project.
A world class, unique destination that will deliver an unsurpassed experience to all visitors – this is what the Circuit of Wales represents and what it will passionately strive to deliver.
Circuit of Wales will transform 830 acres of Blaenau Gwent in the scenic Welsh valleys on an unparalleled scale, and will shine the global spotlight on the region. The innovative scheme will wholly regenerate the area, providing unrivalled opportunities in job creation, tourism, and research and development.
As the most significant capital investment programme in automotive infrastructure in the UK in the last 50 years, the Circuit of Wales will ensure Wales becomes synonymous with high quality motor sport activity, commerce and entertainment worldwide.
The development will be a major addition amongst Europe’s front-ranking motor sport facilities and will be designed to host international events such as MotoGP, World Superbikes, World Motocross and World Touring Car.
The Circuit of Wales will represent a centre of excellence for UK motor sport and deliver an unrivalled low carbon international motor sports facility in Wales.
