About Race of Remembrance

The Event (4th Annual Race of Remembrance)

 Returning to the wonderful Anglesey circuit for the fourth year, the 2017 Race of Remembrance commemorates the sacrifices made by service personnel and their families. This unique endurance race features a Heroes dinner, night racing, and a trackside service of Remembrance.In true Mission Motorsport style, the weekend is about more than just the racing. The off track action means a great social weekend at the end of the season, while on track there is a unique interruption to an endurance motorsport event. At 10.45 on Sunday morning, the track will fall silent as the race pauses to hold a service of Remembrance.

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.

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.
