Sand Racing has been held in Guernsey since before World War 2 and has been organised by the Guernsey Motorcycle & Car Club throughout its history. Solo motorcycles and spectacular 1000cc sidecars compete on the large and smooth sandy Vazon Beach.
The Solo’s are all Single Cylinder 500cc 4 stroke powered machines that run on pure Methanol, they have a 2 speed gearbox NO brakes and are very light, acceleration is phenomenal with a 0-60mph time of 3.4s.
The Sidecars are just as specialised, most have 1000cc Superbike engines with the fuel injection and electronics removed and replaced with large carburettors again running on pure Methanol, although there a few 1000cc V-Twin powered machines.
Sand Racing is always fast and spectacular, riders race in very close proximity to each other at very high speeds so a great deal of skill is involved, fortunately accidents are rare but with high speeds involved they are an accepted risk of the sport.
MADMAX Race team is very happy to sponsor and support such a superb well attended event.
