Hollywood blockbuster filmed scenes in the heart of Mid Wales

Well imagine my surprise last night when I went to see the new film “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” (I won’t ruin it for anyone because it’s worth watching) and found myself instantly recognising some of the terrain in the scenes towards the end of the film.

It was none other than the start of the Pikes Peak Navigation Rally special test! The broad switchbacks climbing up the hill, those same ones we were power-sliding around back in March this year, are featured in Guy Ritchie’s latest Hollywood blockbuster film.

These scenes were filmed in the heart of the Cambrian Mountains in Mid Wales, apparently the crew spent around a week in the area surrounding Dyffryn Castell during filming.

So there you go - if you've raced in the All Terrain Rally Challenge over the last couple of years, the chances are you'll be able to watch the film and say "I've raced along there at full speed as well"!

I really enjoyed this film and I'd recommend you go and see it! You'll find yourself recognising plenty of other scenes from around the UK too, no doubt.
