This weekend’s annual Aberdare Park Road Race event is aiming to raise over £6,000 for Park Lane Special School, in conjunction with Aberdare Motorcycle Club.
The 30th anniversary of Wales’ only national road race is expected to attract thousands of spectators over both days.
A total of 44 races will be run on the 0.9 mile circuit with categories including 50cc, 125cc, 400cc, 600cc and classics.
The course car, which ensures all races, riders and spectators are safe at all times is provided by Capitol Volkswagen.
A host of trade stalls, a fun fair and refreshments will be available during the weekend.
Organiser, Aled Lloyd, said: “As it’s the 30th anniversary of the Aberdare Road Races, we’re aiming to entertain the thousands of people and also help the Park Lane Special School in raising vital funds.
“The school provides a vital service to our community and we’re delighted to be able to help out.
“We’re very grateful to all our sponsors, including Capitol Volkswagen for the essential course car.”
The event takes place from 9am to 6pm on Saturday and Sunday, with entry free for children under 15 with a playing adult; this is limited to two children per group.
