The countdown is on for the eagerly-awaited AMCA Skegness Beach Race taking place on the weekend of November 9-10.
Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the event continues to rapidly grow in stature and attracts big entry lists and thousands of spectators who are able to watch all of the great action unfold absolutely free.
This year, as well as the main three-hour contest, there’s again racing for Clubmen, Vets, Quads and Sidecars with entries available right up to the start date!
Since its inaugural year, the Skegness Beach Race has been warmly embraced and welcomed by the local authorities and population both in and around the coastal Lincolnshire town.
For 2019, Visit Lincs Coast, Magna Vitae Trust and East Lindsey District Council are again offering their full support, vital for the continued growth of this superb AMCA weekend.
Other sponsors on this occasion include Integro (Motorsport Insurance), Datatag Security and Dunlop Tyres.
The racing starts on Saturday at 10.30am with a 90-minute sprint for Clubmen and Veteran solos followed at 12.30pm by the Quads/Sidecars battle. In that Quads clash the 2018 Skegness winner and exciting young star Harry Walker tops the early entry.
Day two and it’s the big one with a tough three-hour contest to decide who takes home the £1,000 winner’s cheque on offer. The list of previous victors of the main Skegness race makes very impressive reading with Nathan Watson (three), Milko Potisek (two), Dan Thornhill, Nathan Parker, James Hutchinson and 2018 top man Todd Kellett all on there.
Kellett is back this time around to try and defend his hard-earned title, along with his Yamaha France/Drag’on Tek team team-mate Potisek but the fast blue pilots are sure to face a serious challenge from the current AMCA MX2 champion and sand racing star Jamie Wainwright.
So far the early entry list also includes the likes of 2019 AMCA 125cc champion Lewis Dowdeswell, Ryan Crowder, Brad Thornhill, Ryan Staveley and Travis Steels.
Sunday’s main race also offers the chance for Clubmen and Veterans to go into action again as they chase a new Ironman award for 2019, the one proviso being that they get over the finish line on both days!
