VHRA Pendine Sands Hot Rod Races

http://www.vhra.co.uk/VHRA/Pendine_Sands.html

From their website as of 15th Nov 2016

The fifth annual running of the Hot Rod Races will be happening on Pendine Sands over the weekend of 24th and 25th June 2017. Once again there will be two days of non-stop racing action on the historic beach in Carmarthenshire, South Wales. We will be starting around 11am each day and racing for around five to six hours, with non-stop action from start to finish. Everything is determined by the tide so times canít be set in stone.

Current info from the website  http://www.vhra.co.uk/VHRA/Pendine_Sands.html  says


Free Spectating

Outside of the pits itís free to come and spectate. The view of the race cars is fantastic and you you can wander down the beach to see the cars at speed. There is a fee of £3 per car payable on the day which will allow you to park on the hallowed beach in your car. No pre-booking is required, you do not need to be a member and there is no limit on numbers. This will not permit you to enter the pit or race areas, nor will you have access to the after race party.

That's different this year isn't it? Normally spectators have to view from the road don't they? (never been, just going on what I've been told).

There's no road anywhere near, spectating was for a few hundred yards along (and a long way away at a diverging angle) the course, limited by the amount of crowd barrier that can be laid I guess. The issue being the further along you go, the further away you are. You need to get into the pits really.
Pendine really has gone H&S mad since the zealots closed the beach, shame, but there we are.
