OC ENDS SUCCESSFUL SEASON AT RoR

Tom Onslow-Cole (GB) and the Milltek Sport KPM Racing team will return to the Race of Remembrance this weekend aiming to repeat their race-winning form of 2014 The event that raises money for Help for Heroes charity Mission Motorsport, while giving ex-servicemen and women the chance to battle it out on the Anglesey Circuit in North Wales. 

After a successful inaugural event last year, the Race of Remembrance returns with a new longer nine-hour format that sees 45 cars race into darkness. Three hours take place on Saturday 7 November with five hours on Sunday 8 November divided with a break for the Remembrance Sunday Service. 

OC will drive in a new Milltek Sport KPM Racing VW Golf, an upgrade from the car that won the race last year, and will be joined once again by Jade Edwards (GB) and new team-mate Lucas Orrock (GB).

“I race in some fantastic endurance events around the world but this one is particularly special as it’s for such an amazing cause,” he commented. “Of course, we go to every race looking to win but this race is about so much more. It’s about being thankful to those who have served our country and giving something back to the ex-service men and women from Mission Motorsport.” 

Entry for spectators is £10 per adult (£15 for a weekend pass) and children under 16 years old can enter for free. Tickets include a Saturday night firework display, access to the hospitality unit and passes to the #RoRRock, a nightly music concert.

The Race of Remembrance starts at 1600hrs on Saturday 7 November and runs for three hours before parking up for the night. The race action resumes at 0900hrs on Sunday 8 November with a 30-minute Rememberance Service between 1045hrs and 1115hrs.
