Sounds OK, but being a tight arse I'd be looking to romp over some fields and watch on the sly...

Has the rider never seen a sheep before ? He knows what they do now.

Not exactly cheap for a non series race and who is going to be racing, looks more less club racing.

Not bad old farts pricing except that is only on a day basis so not so attractive for 3 days.

Camping is no bargain and seems to be away from the track.

 Plan B posted earlier on another forum

The directors of the Welsh Road Race regretfully announce the postponement of the 2018 Welsh Road Race.  This is due to recent changes in legislation on the Road Traffic Act in Wales.  A date for the 2019 event has already been requested and will be announced shortly.

On the 9th of January this year, there was a hearing with regard to the repeal of the Road Traffic Act.  The repeal was to allow the use of closed Public Roads for Motorsport events.  This repeal came into effect yesterday, on the 2nd February.

The Welsh Road Race had gained permissions previously, but the current change in legislation, has put the the timescale of the event into jeopardy, as there will not be enough time to obtain the correct permissions now to permit the event.
   
"We are working closely with the ACU, Crown Properties and Powys County Council to organise the Welsh Road Race, and under the new changes in legislation, the new deadlines that have been imposed, will make it very difficult to carry out a safe and successful event', said Derek Smith, Managing Director of the Welsh Road Race, " the Board of Directors are absolutely devastated, for all the supporters and all concerned with the event. We have began steps to contact all our supporters and sponsors who are involved in the event."

Paul King, Chairman of the ACU Road Race Committee said, "Following concerns raised with the Auto Cycle Union at the end of the year about the proposed Welsh Road Race in August 2018, Members of the ACU Road Race Committee recently met with the event organisers, to understand what was being proposed and what was required for the event to progress.
 
In order for the ACU Road Race Committee to sanction the event, a list of requirements required  from the Organisers was agreed.  It would appear that the timetable to achieve the event for 2018 cannot be achieved.
 
The ACU Road Race Committee will endeavour to assist the organisers in progressing the event for 2019."

There seems to be a death wish or something about Welsh racing.

The 1000 bikes only made it once.

A bit of bad luck and a bit of missed planning but at least it looks like they will manage it next year.

Unlike COW which always looked well dodgy from first time I saw it suggested.
