Upcoming Historic Racing
No historic racing on the schedule for yet.
Anglesey Circuit is perched on a cliff-top in, you’ve guessed it, Anglesey in Wales. Following a £3.6m investment starting in 2006 there are now 4 configurations for races - the Club Circuit (0.8miles); National Circuit (1.2 miles); Coastal Circuit (1.55 miles) and International GP Circuit (2.1 miles).
Frequently used on C5’s popular TV programme 5th Gear one straight on the circuit is named in memory of Wales’s only F1 driver to date - Tom Pryce. Pryce was tragically killed at the 1977 South African Grand Prix in Kylami in a horrific accident involving a track Marshall.
Anglesey is a former army radar and missile training base and whilst being second to Silverstone as the UK’s widest track (12 meters across) is second to none for having the most beautiful setting.
1. Gradient changes make Anglesey an exciting and popular circuit to race.
2. The Corkscrew is akin to a mirror image of Laguna Seca’s series of corners of the same name - a great use of the gradient change.
3. School sweeps uphill towards Rocket - a tightening left hander followed by a right turn closest to the cliffs and sea.
