Race the Waves Custom Motorcycle & Steampunk Fair

Part of the Race the Waves Weekend


BACKFIREs 'Race the Waves' is unique, exciting and also a FREE to attend event for the UK. The style for the event vision was forged from a huge amount of research, which culminated in a very success pilot being performed on the Bridlington Sands in the Autumn of 2018.

Race the Waves will return to Bridlington in 2019, for a full weekend event on the 1st & 2nd of June. Bridlington will see American & Custom/Hot-Rod style vehicles, together with Classic style motorcycles around the town with two morning sessions of sprints on the south beach sands in front of the promenade.

At this time, we are planning for the opening ceremony being 9.30am (subject to weather conditions and tides). Cars and motorcycles will line up to perform 'drag style' sand sprints in pairs over an 1/8 mile track on the beach. The participants and audience are encouraged to attend dressed in vintage to retro attire to add to the overall atmosphere.
The event can be viewed in its entirety from the elevated south promenade, where we will have supporting trade and exhibition areas.

To accompany the beach/foreshore element for 2019, the Race the Waves weekend will have a FREE to enter, motorcycle exhibition combined with a Steampunk emporium, within the beautiful surroundings of the Royal Hall of Bridlington's Spa. The very successful Whitby Steampunk Weekend folk are joining with us to create another first for the UK, by combining Motorcycles with a Steampunk trade fair.
