A HIGH-PROFILE race scheduled to take place at Anglesey Circuit next weekend has been cancelled due to a marshal shortage.

The Citroën C1 24-hour race was set to take place from September 7-8 but it will now not be going ahead as the number of marshals confirmed did not coincide with normal safety regulations.

This was due to form part of the British Automobile Racing Club’s two-day event, and the meeting will now just run on Saturday with a busy schedule for Caterham Graduates and the Hyundai Coupe Cup.

Arguably one of the largest championships in the UK, the Caterham Graduates Championship is open to 1600cc Caterham Roadsport cars, as originally raced in the Caterham Scholarship and Caterham Academy series. The championship boasts a multi-class system to allow for various engines to compete.

With entry lists topping 40 cars on a regular basis, the close and competitive racing is quite often awe-inspiring, and nowhere more so than at Anglesey on the technically challenging Coastal configuration which includes the ever- popular Corkscrew complex.

The Hyundai Coupe Cup is one of the fastest-growing series’ in the UK under the British Automobile Racing Club umbrella.

Roaring into life a few years ago, the Coupe Cup is a budget conscious, single-make category for first and second generation two-litre Hyundai Coupe cars running a strict set of construction rules. Using control parts from some of the top motorsport manufacturers ensures that costs are kept in check and it is the driver that makes the difference.
