Skegness Enduro

Sunday was the Enduro event in the ACMA Annual Skegness Beach Race Weekend. The Enduro consisted of 3 hours of motorcycles racing around a landscaped beach circuit that straddled the pier. It was hard to tell how many competitors started the race, at least 50, possibly 100.

After completing the northern part of the beach course, competitors race back to the southern end to start the next lap (or pit for more fuel).

Quite a few bikes were unable to cope with 3 hours of pummelling over sand. It was only going to be a matter of time before the bike producing white smoke retired.
