Well its come round again. I live in Weston. Anyone fancy joining me and going down to the beach race on Saturday and Sunday.

I can't offer accommodation but I can offer a meeting point, copious amounts of tea/coffee/refreshments, usual facilities, etc...

I think racing will start at 12pm so if there are any takers we could meet up at 11am at my house and take a ride down. I live 15 mins away.

It really is quite incredible if you haven't seen this spectacle before. 1000+ bikes screaming down the 1 mile straight is quite awesome. Well worth the effort.

I'd be up for this. The only slight problem I can foresee is that on Friday 22nd I leave my current company, and tradition dictates that there is a serious beer session in the evening. Thus an early start on Saturday is extremely unlikely. :wink:

What's the format for the 2 days, is the Saturday a qualifier for Sunday? Do different classes race on different days?

Damn I've got Anakee's on so can't do it!

There was someone last year trying to do it on a KTM big bastard thing. They didn't last long!! I think the drop out rate is something like 75%.
Personally I prefer watching the quads and sidecars than the solo's.

I have plenty of video if I can work out how to convert it to be suitable for viewing on the web I'l post some up.
