Anglesey circuit launches a trackday for rally cars to open the sport to new crews
Anglesey Circuit will run a new circuit rally trackday.
The North Wales track will hold the event on November 24, and plans to run more like it throughout 2017.
The event works like a regular circuit racing track day, but will feature a split of all-asphalt stages for drivers and co-drivers to run.
Drivers will tackle two 1.5-mile stages in the morning, before each run is then reversed. In the afternoon a single 2.5-mile stage will be run in both directions, meaning each entry gets a total of six stages to try plus a recce of each one.
The event will allow any drivers holding a regular UK road driving licence to take part with any form of Uk-registered car.
Anglesey Circuit manager Andrew Crighton said: “It’s an idea we’ve had for a while and we ran a pilot event with staff and invited crews and it was very well received. We’ll now run full days for the public and hopefully more next year too.
“Track days do so much for circuit racing as they allow anybody to have a go on track, but there’s nothing like this for rallying. Wales has a huge rally culture, so days like this can hopefully feed new crews into the sport by letting them have a go.”
