BARC trio set pulses racing at Anglesey

Anglesey Circuit provided a fitting backdrop for a memorable two days of British Automobile Racing Club action this past weekend (May 25/26) as three championships took centre stage in North Wales.

In what was the first of a handful of visits to the picturesque venue this year, challenging and changeable conditions greeted the Distrigo Parts Distribution Citroen C1 Series, CNC Heads Sports/Saloon Car Championship and Legends Cars National Championship with MRF Tyres – adding to the spectacle.

Coming off the back of their history-making weekend at Silverstone where a brand new record for the largest grid was set, the C1 Series fielded a 25-car grid for four-hour encounter.

In what proved to be an action-packed 240 minutes, the PrepTech UK team came to the fore to ultimately cross the line and clinch a popular victory, Having qualified tenth, the duo of Colin Lewis and Nicole Drought powered their way up the order

Rounding out the podium was Team Davies, made up of John Davies and Matthew Davies, and Majestic Motorsport; which housed the trio of Greg Richardson, Geoff Richardson and Jonathan Taylor.

The Legends Cars National Championship with MRF Tyres saw plenty of wheel-to-wheel action over the course of the weekend as Sy Harraway moved to the top of the points.

Underlining the unpredictable nature of the championship, the action proved to be frenetic over the course of both days. Harraway emerged as one of the big winners as he bagged himself a pair of wins alongside with the points lead.

Marcus Pett also secured a double of his own whilst Sean Smith and Miles Rudman weren’t to be denied the spotlight either as they each topped the podium too.

Alongside the British contingent, fans were also treated to Scottish and Irish Legends action too.

Capping off the weekend’s action from Anglesey was a pair of races from the CNC Heads Sports/Saloon Car Championship. Open to all manner of cars and running under a multi-class format, non-stop entertainment is part of the norm with the series, and it didn’t disappoint in North Wales.

However, despite a bumper 29-car entry list nobody was able to stop Danny Bird from stealing the show. At the wheel of his Spire GTR, Bird was unstoppable as he romped to pole position in qualifying and then took a hat-trick of race wins.
