This event will be action packed with Motorbikes, Quadbikes which can all be viewed free of charge from the esplanade.

The beach course when constructed will be approximately one mile long and is designed to test the riders to the limits, reaching speeds of 70 mph, while competitively negotiating ‘Bomb Holes’, Dare Devil Jumps, Sharp Chicanes and a high speed straight.

The event is raising funds for the Dorset & Somerset Air Ambulance Service.
