An­gle­sey cir­cuit launches a track­day for rally cars to open the sport to new crews

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

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.”
