Under the plans proposed by the Heads of the Valleys Development Company, a world class, 3.5-mile circuit to host top motor sports events will be built, alongside investment in a range of commercial, industrial and leisure facilities based around the low carbon automotive industry.

The project is to be built on an 830-acre site near Ebbw Vale in Blaenau Gwent.
