The 1.55 mile Coastal circuit at Anglesey will host the BRSCC North Western Centre’s eighth meeting of the season this weekend and by coincidence there are eight races on the schedule.

It is a crucial weekend for the Fun Cup as each day is dominated by a 3-hour race for the endurance championship. Current champions Team Racelogic, consisting of the experienced trio of Julian Thomas, Nigel Greensall and Joachim Ritter hold a 33-point lead over car #207 Team OBR –Wave 9, piloted by Mark Burton, Graham Pattle and Dominic Jackson. With 210 points still up for grabs before the end of the season the title is still there to be won and that includes the other Team OBR car, the Young Guns of Tom Pattle, Zoe Wenham and Guy Wenham.

This weekend’s Formula Ford 1600 triple-header event is the final meeting of the BRSCC’s 2014 National Championship. And what a season it’s been ……..with countless wheel-to-wheel battles, and high quality, entertaining racing right from the outset. Experienced racer Stuart Gough tops the National points table going into the final three rounds. 28 points behind Stuart is Medina Sport driver, David McArthur, and there’s all to play for with over 100 points on offer over the two days. Also right in the mix is third place man, James Raven, who has suffered a couple of non-finishes and a mechanical failure this year – but on his day has proved to be as quick as anyone on the grid.

In a break with the norm for the season so far, the Pre-90 and Post-89 categories will be qualifying and racing together on the same grids. Jamie Jardine is already confirmed as the National Pre 90 champion, but he still has a fight on his hands to secure the Northern title, with Chris Hodgen stalking him doggedly.

Tony Rudd is the man who is leading the Demon Tweeks/Sparco XR Challenge and he will be looking to stretch his lead with points from three races to be fought over. The XR3i class is led by Lee Bowron but he has Frodsham’s Jonathan Wells in very hot pursuit. The XR drivers will also be scoring points in their quest for the Champion of Anglesey Trophy, which as with the main championship looks to be going the way of Cheshire’s Tony Rudd.

The forecast for Trac Mon suggests it will be dry and mild on both days with highs of 17 degrees. You can view a detailed forecast at ANGLESEY WEATHER
