Weston Beach Race 2007

Story posted: 21. October 2007 by Richard Swaffield

Weston Beach Race – the largest off road motorcycle event in the UK, and one of the largest in the world. 2007 marks the silver anniversary of the Weston Beach Race, One of the main elements of the beach race has always been the number of competitors riding to raise money for charity, this year was no different with over 1100 Riders in the Senior solo race. If you were racing for Charity, and I have an image that you wish to use, please drop me an email, and I will sort you out. Unfortunately I was only present for the Senior Solo race, but what a battle it was! The entire front at Weston-super-Mare is given over to the Beach Race with a fun fair, trade site and other family activities all in full swing for the duration of the event. While extra shows like the Monster Trucks or Quad Freestyle Display on the beach, all add to the weekend experience.
