Spectator Guide

Motor sport contributes over £6 billion to the British economy, it is also contributing significantly towards improving environmental issues, and Anglesey Circuit was the first circuit to commit to the British government’s Energy Efficient Motor Sport initiative.

 In January 2009, the circuit was honoured to receive the top prize in the Tourism and the Environment category at the Anglesey Tourism Awards. Each year at Anglesey Circuit includes many aspects of motor circuit usage, from manufacturers developing efficiency and reliability and alternative power sources to our spectator events listed in this brochure which include motorcycle races, car races, stage rallies and sprints.

Race Events
For cars or motorcycles racing wheel to wheel. Each race meeting would normally have several different races for a variety of categories. The number of starters depends on the type of event, which circuit is in use and the specification of the competing car or motorcycle.
Sprints
Car sprinting is basically time trials for a wide selection of different vehicles. The cars start individually and usually complete a lap and three quarters of the circuit, finishing their timed run at a different place to the start, thus allowing the next car to start before the previous car has finished. Interest for the spectator would often be the different types of cars assembled in the paddock more than the track activity.
Stage Rallies

Approximately 80 to 90 cars compete using the specially prepared stages, of which there are several, offering spectators continuous action.

Professional drifting competitions are judged according to the speed, angle, showmanship and line taken through a corner or set of corners.
