The countdown is on for the eagerly awaited AMCA Skegness Beach Race which is taking place on the weekend of the 9th and 10th of November. Celebrating its 10th Anniversary, the event continues to rapidly grow in stature, attracting big entry lists and thousands of spectators who are able to watch all of the great action unfold totally for FREE.
In 2019 as well as the main 3 hour contest there’s also again racing for Clubmen, Veterans, Quads and Sidecars with entries available right up to the start date!
Since its inaugural year, the Skegness Beach Race as 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 Skegness racing starts on Saturday morning at 10.30am with a 1.5 hour sprint for Clubmen and Veteran solo riders 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 as a tough 3 hour contest will decide who takes home the £1,000 winners cheque on offer. The previous victors of the main Skegness race makes very impressive reading, the list comprising of Nathan Watson (3), Milko Potisek (2), Dan Thornhill, Nathan Parker, James Hutchinson and 2018 top man Todd Kellett. For 2019, Kellett is back to try and defend his hard-earned title along with his Drag’on TEK Yamaha teammate Milko 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 for the main race which kicks-off at 11.30am also includes the likes of 2019 AMCA 125cc Champion Lewis Dowdeswell, Ryan Crowder, Brad Thornhill, Ryan Staveley and Travis Steels. Sunday 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 day’s!
So Skegness is definitely the place to be where you will not only witness some top Beach Race action but also find specialist trade-stands, beachside food outlets, cafes, restaurants and the warm hospitality of the local community ready to make your day or weekend perfectly complete!
