Fifth Gear test track

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I know the Top Gear test track is at Dunsfold aerodrome but at which circuit do Fifth Gear film their races/road tests at?
     
  2. Mona on Anglesey I think
     
  3. My racing mad mate just told me its at Ty Croes not Mona
     
  4. I think that you are right. When you see the track on TV and there is the Sea in the background: Not a lot of Sea visible from Mona.
    I don't know how long Ty Croes has been a track though. It certainly wasn't a track in '76

    Ty Croes track

    edit: added link
     
  5. Racing mad says it was built to order a few years ago and not apparantly on an old airport as I thought was the norm
     
  6. Cheers Tropper and Bonzo
     
  7. Is it not up by the old RAF radar station at Rhosneigr ? Used to be a ramble of old wooden huts used for a transit/adv trg base and a fabric covered "Radome" golfball type thing that was operational at the time iirc, every time I watch the prog I seem too recognise the area and coastline but I am trying to recollect memories from 18 years ago.
     
  8. Certainly is ; 1 of the corners is called radar.Its had a refurb and a new layout since 5th gear used it.

    Cracking track but by fook its windy
