This weekend it’s the big 2019 AMCA Skegness Beach Race. Celebrating its 10th anniversary, the event continues to rapidly grow in stature, attracting star names and thousands of spectators all for free.
In 2019 as well as the main three-hour contest there’s also again racing for Clubmen, Veterans, Quads and Sidecars with entries available right up to the start date!
The Skegness racing starts on Saturday at 10.30am with a 90-minute sprint for Clubman and Veteran solo riders followed at 12.30pm by the Quads/Sidecars battle.
Topping the Quads entry is the 2018 Skegness winner and exciting young star Harry Walker while multiple Skegness Sidecar winner Alun Davies makes the long journey from Wales in an attempt to bag yet another crown.
In the Quads/Sidecars race, there is a total of £450 prize money up for grabs as well as the normal trophies. Day two and it’s the big one as a tough three-hour contest starting at 11.30 am will decide who takes home a share of the £1,600 prize money which includes a very nice £1,000 winners cheque.
The previous victors of the main Skegness race makes very impressive reading with the list comprising Nathan Watson, Milko Potisek, Dan Thornhill, Nathan Parker, James Hutchinson and 2018 top man Todd Kellett.
So far the entry list for the main race includes the likes of Kellett, along with his Yamaha France/Drag’on Tek team-mate Milko Potisek, AMCA MX2 champion and sand racing star Jamie Wainwright 2019 AMCA 125cc champion Lewis Dowdeswell, Ryan Crowder, Brad Thornhill, Ryan Staveley and Travis Steels.
Sunday also offers the chance for Clubmen and Veterans as they chase a new Ironman for 2019, the one proviso being that they get over the finish line on both days!
