Just 6 miles along the coast from Skegness, Mablethorpe has become a mecca for a whole host of off-roaders (and some on) who ply their trade on a myriad of weird and wonderful machinery, racing on oval circuits of around 600 metres.
These events cater for everyone… yep everyone… so you can chuck your motocrosser in the back of the van and race… or your minibike, Quad, Grasstracker, Sidecar or your Road going machine as long time Mablethorpe stalwart Guy Martin does, with his latest steed being an Africa Twin. Road bikes just need a set of knobbly tyres, a lanyard cut out and your on the sand.
If you are into quirkiness, ie Dirtquake, and the Inappropriate class at Scunthorpe Speedway… and you won’t be disappointed here either as a whole host of man-made contraptions will be seen on track with a Calor Gas petrol tank being one of our favourites.
Events take place every fortnight during from October until March with the next being this Sunday 10th November. Signing on starts at 8am with the racing taking place aprox 2 hours later. As a private club entries fees are low with your first meeting costing £50 which includes your membership with all of the following meetings being £35.
