Straightliners Pendine Sands 2017

Straightliners Pendine Sands is a race to reach 200mph in a vehicle of your choice.  This year was the first event i attended after seeing an advertisement for the race.  The competitors race on a mixture of vehicles but mainly involving motorcycles.  Most of these motorcycles are custom built whilst others are built for fun to see how fast it can go.  Its not just motorcycles though, this year a go kart, three wheeler’s and even a shed entered to make an attempt to break the speed record.  It’s all good fun!
