Race of Remembrance

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the First World War, Mission Motorsport – The Forces’ Motorsport Charity – bring you the Race of Remembrance

At 08:00hrs, Sunday 9th November, 45 teams will embark on the eight-hour race around the Anglesey International circuit. Teams of up to four drivers and cars will compete in the relay-style race with only the bravest daring to enter the ultimate; the Heroes Trophy - a single car entry in true endurance style.

Racing will pause at 10:45hrs for our own Remembrance Service in the pit-lane. With many of the entrants wounded, injured and sick (WIS) Military personnel and veterans from within the Mission Motorsport programme we will pause for thought at 11:00hrs, hosted by Army Chaplain Revd Antony Feltham-White (himself, winner of Top Gear’s ‘Vicar who can go quicker’) and supported by a Welsh Male Choir. Our hope is that the entire circuit; racers, support teams, families, sponsors, marshals and the general public will all join us for this short, unique moment.

Racing will resume at 11:15hrs and continue until eight hours has elapsed.

Entry is open to:
All vehicles must be derived from series production cars, that have been available for sale in the EU, and been subject to a minimum production run of 500 units.

Class A) Up to 2000cc (multi valve)
Class B) Up to 2000cc (2V per cylinder) or 1800cc (multi valve)
Class C) Up to 1800cc (2V per cylinder) or 1600cc (multi valve)
Class D) Below 1600cc (2V per cylinder) or 1400cc (multi valve)

Race entry is £2000 per team entry. This INCLUDES all race fuels for the weekend !

In addition, any team entering the Heroes Trophy will be allowed some ‘artistic licence’ on engine (maintaining original block) and bodywork to enable a more robust endurance entry .

Race of Remembrance Weekend

This event is about much more than just a race.

As is the Mission Motorsport ethos; inclusion is key. We’ve invited friends of ours along from all corners of the Motorsport and wider automotive world to make this weekend both unforgettable and un-missable.

  • Back ground activity: from go-karts, MX-5 Auto-test and Monster Trucks to static and showcase-lap displays of historic F1 cars and trader stalls, we’ve tried to ensure there’s something for all petrolhead tastes.
  • Supercar Saturday: Once qualifying is complete, Anglesey Circuit will split in two with both drift cars and supercars offering passenger-laps on Club and National.
  • Guest drivers: Teams can request a guest driver to subsidise their race entry; an opportunity for Club racers to race and teammate some of the best-known faces in British Motorsport. Headlining the guest drivers are (from BTCC): Rob Austin, Adam Morgan, Paul O’Neill and Dan Welch, (from endurance racing): Calum Lockie and Elliott Cole. Guest drivers will also pilot the eclectic mix of race and road cars ‘borrowed’ from some very, very generous supporters as part of our Supercar Saturday

Any weekend event wouldn’t be a weekend event without a party. We have three and, in keeping with the ‘inclusion’ theme, anyone is welcome to attend:

  • Friday: the Heroes Dinner will see all drivers, teams, guests and Mission Motorsport ‘blokes’ descend on for an informal, banter-filled evening with the odd raffle prize and after dinner speech thrown in. Guest drivers will also be married to their teams, names-out-the-hat style.
  • Saturday: see’s the Party-in-the-Paddock hosted by the Pit-stop Cafe at the circuit with live music and (as a small token of our appreciation) some beer token s for the Marshals behind the bar.
  • Sunday: if anyone has any energy left the Pit-stop cafe will host the informal Wash(ed)-up party to network for next year...
