The Sports 1000 rivalry of Richard Morris and Ryan Yarrow continued once again at Anglesey. It was Yarrow who put his Spire on pole and made the best getaway as Morris fell to fourth. Yarrow built a healthy gap only for push rod failure to cause a DNF, this allows Morris who charged from fourth to second to take the win. Race two and it was roles reversed as the race was restarted Morris had another poor getaway allowing Yarrow to move ahead and win.

16 Historic 750 Formula cars took to the track as race one saw Martin Depper in his Centaur won ahead of Christian Pederson as early pacesetter Lyndon Thruston failed you finish. The second race saw Trefor Slatter won ahead of race one winner Depper by just under two and a half seconds.

This was the first motorsport meeting to be held in Wales since lockdown, time will tell if we will see motorsport resume in Wales soon.
