Are the vertical rods at the side a new means of keeping you on the track ?

Be a hell of a track once it's done, either that or use it for Rallycross as it is...

I know sprints are dull but i wouldn't have thought you'd have to erect a barrier to keep them in...

Encouraging News

I am glad to see that the Anglesey Circuit is now taking shape. The Club Circuit which is just 0.8 miles round will not be used as a stand alone sprint venue. We are planning to have a Single Lap sprint around the International Circuit - just over two miles for the one lap - on the Saturday followed by a two lap sprint round the National Circuit on the Sunday - 2.25 miles for the two laps.

Having walked the course last June I thought it was going to be very good indeed. These latest developments lead me to believe it is going to an excellent facility and you will need to get your entries in early!

Cool!

That must be so awesome in a big single seater.
Look forward to dragging myself up to Anglesea. Not been there since i was in my 20's (a while)...

It does look as though it is going to be an excellent venue. Is the Club circuit the section that looks as if it is 'finished' ?

I beleive that there are 4 circuit layouts - the one across the bottom is unsurprisingly called Coastal, , the International as Sprinty has pointed out is the joined up one, not sure what the names of the other two are (club and ?)or which they are (left or right).
We are due there at the end of May for a double weekend and I should be running an on board camera for those that would be interested in where the circuit goes..... less of a critique of my driving ability lines etc
