UK 'sand speed" motorbike record up for grabs at Pendine speed event

Straightliners, European and World sand / land speed event at Pendine Sands, South Wales is taking place on the 12th & 13th May 2018.  Of particular note is some of the most powerful street legal motorbikes will attempt to break the 200mph barrier on the sand which will establish a new UK record. 

At this event participants and spectators will see a range of motorbikes,  karts, three wheelers and maybe even a shed in action.  All runs will be officially timed and submitted for verification as a UK, European and or World land speed record. I don't know what vehicles / bikes of note that will be coming yet -  

Straightliners Pendine event is the European version of the iconic Bonneville Salt Flats in the USA speed record meeting but without the very high cost of getting there for Europeans. 

What: Straightliners Pendine land speed records and racing
When:  From 11am 12th & 13th May 2018
Where: Pendine Sands, Carmarthenshire, South Wales.
