Pendine Sands Speed Week is one of the few chances each year for members of the public to tear up the seven-mile stretch of coastline. The current course record is held by Terry Smith, who hit 194.589mph over 1.5 miles on a Suzuki Hayabusa. We say Pendine Sands’ motoring history stretches back to the 1930s as the sand’s surface was smoother than the roads of the era. In that time it’s been the venue for many record attempts, including Guy Martin’s 112.9mph UK speed record for a slipstreaming bicycle.
