THE North Western Centre of the British Automobile Racing Club runs the first of their two annual race meetings at Anglesey Circuit this Bank Holiday weekend.

For the second year running this meeting has almost become what could be described as a Legends Racing Festival as not only are the ever-popular UK National championship cars racing, the club will also be hosting rounds of the Scottish and Irish championships.

Over the weekend, there will be double headers for each championship resulting in 12 frenetic races. Rather than the grids being made up from practice times, the first heat is drawn by ballot with the second heat grid being the reverse of the first and the final grid being based on the heat results.

This leads to very competitive racing with lots of overtaking. Top drivers to look out for will include Connor Mills who won three times out at the opening round at Brands Hatch, last year’s rookie champion Sy Harrison and Legends National Champion John Mickel.

There will also be three rounds of the CNC Heads Sports/Saloon Championship and following these short, sharp races the weekend will be concluded with a four-hour Citroën C1 race.

The previous event was a 24-hour race at Silverstone with 99 cars and 442 drivers. Although there will not be that number out this weekend, a sizeable grid of about 30 cars is expected with up to six drivers per car.

Picking a winner will be especially difficult but whoever they are they will truly deserve victory. The C1s return to Anglesey in September for a 24-hour race.
