ANGLESEY Circuit’s single seater track days are proving popular with Historic Sports Car Club members in the run up to an upcoming event.

The venue is gearing up to host the Tom Pryce Memorial Race Meeting on July 13 and 14, which will see several classes of historic cars set to descend on the facility prior to the event.

This will allow the drivers to familiarise themselves with the circuit prior to this highly anticipated event, which will be the first major historic race meeting of its kind ever held in Wales.

The meeting will honour the memory of a hugely popular Welsh driver Tom Pryce, who had a meteoric rise to fame and a flourishing Grand Prix career that was tragically curtailed by an accident in the 1977 South African Grand Prix.

The race programme will include the inaugural stand-alone races for Formula Atlantic, Formula 5000s, Historic Formula Ford Championship, Historic Road Sports, Historic Touring Cars, Historic Formula 3/Classic Racing Cars, Historic Formula Junior and Historic Formula Ford 2000.

Andy Dee-Crowne, CEO of the HSCC, said: “We are delighted to be taking a full weekend of HSCC racing to the superb circuit at Anglesey for the first time.

“It is wholly appropriate to honour the life of Tom Pryce, a quiet hero from North Wales who was destined for the very top of the sport.

“Having the inaugural Formula Atlantic races and Historic Formula Ford on the programme provides a perfect link to Tom’s formative years.”
