After several weeks without any racing since Silverstone, the Morgan Challenge made its first ever visit to Ty Croes in the far North West of Wales and the dramatic Anglesey Coastal Circuit.

31 drivers enjoyed qualifying on a dry track, or should that read 30 drivers, as Paul Clarke finished up in the barriers after Corkscrew and suffered extensive damage to his Roadster Lightweight. In Class C the New Elms Plus 8 was beaten to pole position by Steve MacDonald, with Philip Tisdall 3rd.

The first race of the weekend began with a standing start and fortunately Tim found a gap to get ahead of the other Class C cars and managed to hold on to his lead to the finish, although there was never more than a few tenths of a second between the top three. Philip claimed fastest lap for the class.

By all accounts John Bevan in his New Elms prepared Class D 4/4 had a great time dicing with Michelle Bailey amongst others.

The following day saw us back at the circuit for race 2. A few casualties from the Saturday race depleted the grid to 27, and from class pole Tim had a great start and again kept the class lead to the finish, with this time Steve McDonald achieving fastest lap.
