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 competitor’s run on a mixture of transportation, but mainly involving motorcycles.  Most of these motorcycles are custom built while others are made for fun to see how fast it can go.  It’s not just motorcycles though, this year a go-kart, three wheeler’s and even a shed entered in an attempt to break the speed record.  It’s all good fun!

Who are Straightliners?

Straightliners began over twenty years ago with the aim of creating events that enabled competitors to ride at high speed while maintaining safety.  Today it is a thriving organisation holding many races, including Pendine Sands.  More information on their Website.
