Sounds like fun.
I'm going with a couple of Vdummers so I'm outnumbered and looking for club back up!
If you fancy it see here:- http://vhra.co.uk
The runners are all booked now but it's a free to view event.
Just turn up, Pendine beach in Wales.
Parking on the beach is £4 all day.
Interesting location, lots of record breaking speed history - Bluebird, Malcolm Campbell etc and a museum.
What's not to like.
I'm staying at:- www.meadowfarmtenby.co.uk
Tenby is a fantastic destination.
If you fancy it you need to get in quick.
I'm not organising anything for anyone just in case we get another lock down (don't blame me) but you've gotta plan these things or they won't happen.
See you there.
October 2-3rd.

You can drive on the beach.
For miles apparently.

They did stop it but it's started again.
Can't wait.
Driving on the beach has got to be cool.
