RAVENOL partners Sweet Lamb
22 February 2017 | Brian
You won’t get much further away from it all than this, based in 5,000 acres of mid Wales, the Sweet Lamb Rally Complex is one of the UK’s premier motorsport testing facilities. Many miles of dedicated and graded gravel roads, plus almost endless off-road links ideally suited to testing all aspects of rally cars and off-road vehicles. Rally cars that undergo development and testing plus rallying events form the majority of the use of the complex, but other activities including single venue rallying events, autotesting, off road driving & rallying, corporate hospitality and enduro motorbike events also take place here. It is also the scene of one of the most spectacular stages on RallyGB, the UK round of the World Rally Championship.
The ground is suitable for all sorts of rallying events and testing work with gravel and tarmac stages available for development purposes. The Sweet Lamb complex is used on a regular basis for private tests and filming and the location has been used by Top Gear on a number of occasions and by high profile magazines for shot-out tests and photography.
RAVENOL plays a key role in maintaining the earth-moving machinery and other vehicles involved in keeping this massive complex of roads and tracks in top condition by supplying a complete range of oils and greases designed to withstand the harsh elements of this remote mountainous area.
