Anglesey Circuit is set to take centre stage this weekend (November 8/9/10) for one of the highlights of the 2019 UK motorsport calendar – Race of Remembrance – and this year’s event is primed to scale new heights.
Returning to the picturesque North Wales venue for the sixth consecutive year, the three-day meeting will once again blend motor racing with commemorating the sacrifices made by all service personnel and their families.
Run by the Forces’ charity Mission Motorsport, the event is very much billed a Remembrance Service with a 12-hour endurance event attached to it.
With multiple classes structured to ensure that all manner of machinery can compete, this year sees another ultra-competitive entry list confirmed with more than 40 teams scheduled to go wheel-to-wheel for overall glory.
Notable drivers in action include BTCC race winners Tom Ingram and Rob Austin, Mike Conway, four-time IndyCar Series champion Dario Franchitti and his younger brother, sportscar ace Marino Franchitti.
Unique as an event on the whole, Race of Remembrance will be paused at points throughout the weekend, meaning that although it will be a 12-hour endurance race the time it takes to start and finish it will be much longer.
The most notable pause will come at 10:45 on Sunday morning when the racing will stop and the circuit will fall silent for a special service of remembrance, which will take place in the pit lane.
