Anglesey

 The summer Euro Tour and Le Mans trip was cancelled so a long weekend in Anglesey with a track day on the Monday was substituted.  We met up a various locations in Somerset and headed up to the Gloucester Services on the M5 for breakfast and fuel.

We pulled off the M5 at the next junction and ambled up to Anglesey stopping at the Ludlow Brewery for lunch and at Demon Tweeks to see if they had some offers.

Over the weekend we drove around the island and took a 70 kt Rib ride along the Menai Straights.

On Monday we drove to Trac Mon, about 1/2 hour from the accommodation for an excellent track day.  Due to COVID the cars were split into 3 groups and had 7x fixed 20 min sessions from 0900 to 1700; we had excellent weather for late September, sunshine and low 20 deg C.  In the morning the layout was the International and in the afternoon the Coastal, slightly shorter and incorporating the tricky 'Corkscrew' corners.
