The RHL Beach Race at Weston is the biggest off-road event on the UK calendar. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the event. Beach racing is an offshoot of motocross racing. Riders on solo motorcycles and quad bikes compete on a course marked out on a beach, with man-made jumps and sand dunes being constructed to make the course tougher.
