Life's a beach.....

10th April 2016

How does the saying go?

'Life's a beach'.... or something like that!

Anyway that more or less describes my weekend as I spent quite a bit of the time on a beach ;-)

Saturday I headed down to Vazon Bay for the first Sand Race meeting of the Guernsey Motor Cycle & Car Club's season. It was good to get back to photographing this sport after the winters break... shame the weather was still in 'winter mode' as it was pretty chilly down there.

There was a reasonable entry - particularly Moto-X bikes who seemed to have a great time on the well laid out track.

The car Class entry was also of a good size, it's just a shame that they were mostly saloons... where are the 'Sand Racing Specials' of yester-year? The 'good old days' really were better in this case!

And where were all the side-car outfits after all the efforts Clint Blondel has made to try and establish this Class? Hopefully as the season progresses things will get better.

My beach theme continued on Sunday on a not quite so chilly afternoon down on Chouet beach for the latest Autocross Club Banger racing meeting.

I really love photographing these guys as action is guaranteed... and they didn't disappoint :-)

The galleries for these two events are now online. Keep a look-out for the Karting Championship pics soon.
