Anglesey new circuit(s)

Spent the weekend sprinting at the new Anglesey circuits. Did International GP circuit on Saturday and the National circuit on Sunday.

I can safely say that they are awsome A mixture of everything including banked curves, hairpins, super fast straights and blind crests and drops.

The money has been well spent and the venue is now even better than it was IMO which I thought would not be the case.

I'll second that. The 'international' circuit has a faster straight than Aintree, except it's got curves sprinkled along it. The 'club circuit' is probably about as good as the old circuit & still has school - definately a favourite bend. Just got the corkscrew bit on the 'coastal' circuit to try next time.

Definately one to recommend. Believe next L&CC weekend this year was overbooked ages ago, but you could try Longton October event which might have places.

Great Circuit

Really enjoyed the 2 circuits, nice to have that change, yet still use some of what you had learned on sat on the sunday. The big curvey striaght on the sat is something else

Excellent organisation by the Chester Motor Club again, even sorted so really sunny weather although it might have been a bit tooooooo hot !!

Phew what a scorcher!

Saturday was fantastic. The International circuit, on which we ran 95% of the lap, was brilliant. The run from the Banking via Church to Rocket was fast whilst Rocket is a 90 degree left hander over a blind crest! Dan Pickett was doing 168mph through the kink on this part of the track.

Sunday was equally incredible. The National circuit, which has nothing in common with the old circuit, has the plunging straight past the pits, the intimidating School Corner plus Rocket and Peel. We ran the sprint over 1.95 laps of the track and it was a hoot!

As other posters have already said it was very hot with the tarmac in the paddock melting!

Once again there were a lot of broken cars going home but everyone I spoke to was in awe of what has been achieved.

Well done to Richard Peacock and all the team at Anglesey Circuit and also a BIG thank you to Chester Motor Club who ran two absolutely wonderful events. I suspect that they are currently in line for the Les Edmunds Trophy - again!

Dan Pickett and Stewart Robb won a round a-piece and also each picked up a second place. So we had two Pilbeam MP58 one-twos! The last time that happened was 1996 at Curborough!

That looks like the Coastal circuit which we did 80% of plus a bit more for the Saturday sprint that made up the International GP circuit.

Correcto mundo PW! I like the look of the Corkscrew complex as the cambers don't fall away as much as on the downhill left hander.
