At the Autosport International Show on Saturday 16th January at 11am the Race of Remembrance 2016 to be held at Anglesey Circuit was launched by Mission Motorsport, the Force’s Motorsport Charity.
This signature event is entering its third year, and has attracted strong interest with an unprecedented take-up by teams keen to re-enter as well as new enquires. The formula is tried and tested – we’ll be running into the night, with about 3hrs of racing on the Saturday with the balance of the 1000kms on the Sunday, with the unique interlude of an Act of Remembrance at 11am.
This year’s Race will be organised with BARC. “We are extremely pleased to have been invited to assist Mission Motorsport in organising the 2016 Race of Remembrance,” said BARC’s Chief Operating Officer, Drew Furlong, “We have always been impressed with the incredible work that Mission Motorsport do for the rehabilitation of our service men and women who were affected by military operations and so we are very happy to be a part of the race meeting being held at Anglesey in November.”
Mission Motorsport CEO James Cameron stated “The Race of Remembrance has become a key fixture on our calendar and has also made something of an impact on the British motorsport scene. The support of Anglesey Circuit for a third year means that we will be delighted to return to mark the contribution of serviceman and servicewomen and stage another outstanding race. It looks like 2016 will be another full grid and we are very excited to be welcoming Drew and his team from the BARC whose enthusiasm for the event really impressed us.”
