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.
