As ever at this time of the year, with this meeting hosting the tenth and eleventh rounds of the fourteen round season anyone who has half an eye on one of the coveted class championships is in a tricky situation. Do you risk all, and keep pushing for points…..or do you sit back and see what your challengers are doing?...time will tell. Each rider will treat this round differently.
The Anglesey Coastal Circuit is one that most riders love, but being hung out on the top of North Wales the weather can play a huge part in the weekend and therefore your bike set up.
In recent years it has seen the championship hopes of several riders take a knock.... Sorry to remind you guys (you know who you are....), but this circuit can bite!!
The nimble and fast 250 two stroke GP derived bikes and almost perfectly suited to the circuit layout, so we expect for great action with three proven champions in Ant Hodson, Philip Atkinson and Dan Jackson vying for the 2017 title. Keep an eye too on Simon Hunt who heads the NG Cup series with an impressive 2017 record of ten wins from fourteen starts.
The big superbikes are fast here, but can be a handful around the top reaches of the circuit including the infamous corkscrew. Josh Day continues his rich vein of form on his ZX10 Kawasaki, but Peter Carr on another ZX10, Chris Pope on his R1, Michael Blank also R1 mounted plus Suzuki riders Nick Williamson and Sean Hennessey will be hoping to take the fight to Day
As I said the full gamut of race bikes will be out on this stunning Anglesey coastal circuit. Streetstock, Pre Injections, GP45's, Desmo Due Ducati's, Mini Twins, Super Twins, Sound of Thunder.....There is something for every racer and race watcher...... Moto E
NG is again hosting the UK rounds of the European Moto E series for the innovative all electric powered bikes. Multiple Moto E winner Daley Mathison has been the man to beat on the Nottingham University bike for the last two seasons, but that irks the Chinese Zongshen Team. Could this be the meeting that Zongshen gets back onto the top step of the podium. Power conservation for the rider will be tough here with Anglesey's great elevation changes. The series has been here for the last couple of years so they do at least have data Anglesey Circuit
This spectacular 1.55 mile Anglesey Coastal circuit overlooks the Irish Sea and the Snowdonia Mountains and offers competitors and spectators something very different to almost any other race venue. It is one of the few circuits to be designed and constructed with an entirely new concept. They have taken full advantage of the undulating landscape with two hairpin bends and banked corners….plus the extremely popular corkscrew. The track offers a host of overtaking opportunities for the competitors, so spectators are in for a real treat. NG's Fastest Rider at Anglesey
Billy Mellor holds the fastest NG lap here at 1min 08.11 seconds, which equates to 81.92mph, set in August last year when he was on his BMW S1000R. Adding extra interest to the weekend
NG Road Racing is again running and promoting the British National series for 125cc and 250cc GP machinery. This is the only place in the UK that you will see these ex-GP machines racing for a full British Championship title backed by the ACU (The sports governing body in the UK). We also welcome the Ducati Desmo Due Series back for another year and the same goes for the ever growing band of Formula Prostock runners. In addition to the national series we also have the popular TSGP Two-stroke runners......and don't forget the all electric class ! Anglesey offers a truly unique racing challenge.....
For this the sixth meeting of 2017 we head to Isle of Anglesey for the tenth and eleventh rounds of the fourteen round series. The Anglesey Coastal Circuit is one that most riders love, but being hung out on the top of North Wales the weather can play a huge part in the weekend, so predictions for winners can be tough.
