|Record breaker Helen Lincoln Smith gets to the startline|
40 riders and driving were competing over two days and came from all over the UK with teams from France and Holland also. Sand conditions were different each day with soft sand on the first day Saturday 13th May 2017 which meant vehicles were more difficult to steer due to shifting sand. The sand was firm on day two but a crossed wind effected performance.
Kevin Nicks, Oxford driving his self–designed and built fastest shed in the world establish a world record for the fastest shed on sand reaching 78.965mph.
Tom Anable, Lincolnshire driving his self–designed and built monowheel set a new world record for a monowheel on sand reaching 44.646mph. He already establish a record in 2015 of 43.486mph
Helen Lincoln Smith, York riding a 600cc Honda set a new world record of the fastest woman on sand of 137.093mph
All speeds are from a standing start and over a mile and were timed by the British Timing Association.
