According to the motor magazine, Autosport, the Anglesey Circuit was created from a conversation between Richard Peacock, then owner of the Kirkistown Racing School in Northern Ireland, and Michael Douglas, manager of the Bodorgan Estate.  The plan was to construct a circuit for both cars and motorcycles utilising some of the roads on the former military base.

The first races on the 1.067-mile circuit took place in July 1997. However, in 2006 work began on the complete re-development of the track creating four distinct layouts on a reconfigured circuit.  Racing re-commenced in 2007, and today the circuit is used for club motorcycle and car racing, rallycross, track days, and the British Sprint Championship.
