Full ticket details HERE.

Aberdare Park Road Races is a National Road Race here in the South Wales Valleys, one of the few remaining road races in the UK. 

A revelation that shocks people who are new to this race is that we turn a Victorian park into a racetrack in less than 72 hours! There’s a small, dedicated and brilliant team that works tirelessly through the year, but the visible work is done in 72 hours! 

With only 48 hours to go before the start of the racing we went to Aberdare Park to meet the Race Director DEREK SMITH to see how preparations were going and t get the lowdown on all things road racing…….


Once again, some of the best riders from across the UK head to the County to compete on the unique circuit around Aberdare Park. The event, organised by Aberaman Motorcycle Club and supported by Rhondda Cynon Taf Council, started back in 1950. Actually, there was some illicit, and highly illegal were held around the park from 1948, but officially the start date was 1950 when the government gave in and allowed the first legal race to be held around the perimeter of this incredible Victorian park.
