A good quality entry of senior and junior entries has been received for the second stage rally of Anglesey Circuit’s 2019 motorsport season on Sunday.
The Stockport 061 Motor Club, event includes the Association of North Western Car Clubs, JD Tyres Welsh National Tarmacadam Championship and SD34 Motorsport Group Championships as well as a round of the Junior 1000 Championship.
Event Sponsors, Pete Gabbattis and Dylan Preston from Altratech have been long standing supporters of the club, having sponsored their road rally for numerous years, they were thrilled to sponsor the stage rally in 2018 and have maintained the relationship for 2019.
Leading entries received so far are John Stone in the Legend Fires supported Fiesta WRC, Nigel Jones in his Subaru S9 WRC, Peter Smith in the Greenlight Sports & Entertainment sponsored car, Rob Hughes (Ford Fiesta), Mark Roberts (Ford Fiesta), Tom Blackwood (Fiesta R5), Chris Ford (Subaru S11 WRC) and Anglesey regular Dave Willett in his popular red, white and yellow Ford Escort Mk II. Some of these recently competed on the lanes of Wyre on the North West Stages, but now they’re moving across to the fast flowing circuit at Anglesey.
Currently there are four Ford Fiestas, nine Subaru Imprezas, twelve Ford Escorts of either Mk I or Mk II varieties together with plenty of other marques, so spectators are sure of a great day out. The Senior event is joined by 18 Juniors in the favoured Citroën C1 and Peugeot 107 cars. Keep our eyes on these youngsters as they will be our future rallying stars.
Clerk of the Course, Phil Hesketh, has been working hard at the grindstone with the stage diagrams and competitors are sure of a work-out throughout the day.
