High speed action in store as AMCA Beach Race comes to Skegness
The fifth annual AMCA Beach Race will come to Central Beach, Skegness, on November 8 and 9.
A purpose built course will be seen either side of the pier with the promenade and pier itself providing a great vantage point for spectators.
East Lindsey District Council is once again sponsoring the event which is a very important one in the District’s sporting and cultural calendar, helping to extend the visitor season beyond the summer months.
Since it first came to Skegness in 2010, AMCA has helped to provide a huge boost to the town at a traditionally quieter time of year with upwards of 20,000 people attending the two-day event.
Portfolio Holder for Culture. Leisure and Tourism, Councillor Adam Grist, said: “We are pleased to sponsor the 2014 Beach Race in Skegness and we look forward to working with AMCA yet again to ensure another successful event.
“The event is a very important in East Lindsey’s sporting and cultural calendar and helps to extend the visitor season beyond the summer months. We really need to get the message out there that our District is not only a fantastic summer destination; it is also a great place to visit during the winter period too.”
The free to watch event will include the Clubman Youth, Veteran and Adult classes between 10-11.30am on November 8, followed by quads and side cars between noon and 2.30pm. Then on November 9 the adult solo races will take place between 11.30am and 2.30pm.
The Beach Race is part of the East Lindsey Live programme which spans 12 months of the year with events throughout the District. More information can be found at http://www.eastlindseylive.org
