Entries open for 2018 Race of Remembrance

Preparations for the 2018 Race of Remembrance event are already underway with forces charity Mission Motorsport confirming that entries are now open for teams and drivers.

Once again taking place at Anglesey on November 9/10/11, the momentous meeting will once again commemorate the sacrifices made by all service personnel and their families.

This year’s event will have further meaning too with it being the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day; marking the cessation of hostilities between the Allies of World War 1 and Germany.

A permanent fixture on the UK motorsport calendar, the 2018 edition of Race of Remembrance is set to be bigger and better than ever with a total of 50 teams set to battle it out in a 12-hour endurance race.

Alongside the racing, which will take place both during the and into the night, there will also be a Heroes Dinner and a special remembrance service, where the track will fall silent at 10:45 on the Sunday.

James Cameron, CEO of Mission Motorsport, said: “Race of Remembrance is always a special event and one that is eagerly anticipated by a growing number of people from across the charity, racing industry and further afield.

“This year will be especially poignant, falling as it does on the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, and we will be commemorating the sacrifices made by service men and women in a very special way.”
