This event will run in 2019 over the weekend of June 7-9 and is a ‘World First’, a unique fusion of Rugby Union and the very best of British Motorsport.

After many months of planning, it was announced that the most varied and exciting extravaganza of motorsport will be coming to Parc y Scarlets next year.
Superprix of Wales will be running a wide collection of racing machinery, ranging from Formula 1 to Le Mans cars, from British Touring cars to World Rally cars, from the now banded Group B rally cars to the early and dangerous F1 championship cars of the past.
They will be joined by a variety of drivers, from stars of the future to British European and even previous World Champions.
Superprix of Wales are also bringing along the incredible and crazy stunt driver Terry Grant and his team.
Never before has such an incredible collection of machinery visited South Wales; never before has such an iconic collection of equipment and drivers performed in and around such an incredible Rugby Union Stadium anywhere in the World.
This unique event could not have been put together without the forward thinking team of people at the stadium and the promoter and retired international driver Tim Matthews from Superprix Promotions.
He made the following statement.
” This event is the culmination of a number of years hard work and planning. It gives the people of South Wales a unique opportunity to see, hear, smell and get up close to a collection of racing equipment never previously assembled together in this region. To be able to run these machines in and around Parc y Scarlets is fantastic and gives spectators an incredible opportunity to sit in comfort and watch the action with use of all the facilities on offer.”
“In particular I would like to take a moment to thank Dave Healey for having the initial vision to enable me to explain what I believed we could do all the people at the Scarlets for being so friendly and supportive and allowing this to happen, the huge team of people we are bringing on board to provide all the circuit equipment and all the paraphernalia to make this display spectacular and my team of professionals who have ridden the wave that’s culminated in our launch today. It will be a great event for the spectators, a fun event and something novel for the drivers and I hope the beginning of an annual event for us all.”
