The Fylde ACU British Sand Masters will be returning to St Annes North Beach on Saturday/Sunday 29/30 July 2023 for another thrilling, admission-free weekend of racing. 

After last year’s spectacular success, the Sand Masters 2023 will be extended to a two-day event, with the support event on Saturday 29 July and the main racing on Sunday 30 July. A new addition for 2023 is a funfair offering wholesome fun for all the family. 

Presented by Cheshire Grasstrack Club and supported by Fylde Council, the free admission events will see solo bikes, sidecars and quad bikes racing in a series of contests from 12.30pm each day on a purpose-built oval track north of the North Beach area.  

Cllr Michael Sayward, Chairman of Fylde Council’s Tourism and Leisure Committee, said: “We are delighted to welcome back the Fylde ACU British Sand Masters competition this year. The previous event was a great day out for residents and visitors, and with this year’s tournament expanding to a second day, there’s even more opportunity to watch some of the most talented riders in the country compete. We are fortunate that the beaches of St Annes allow us to host special events such as these while still allowing ample room for people to stroll and enjoy our beautiful coastline.” 

All competitors must be licensed via the Auto-Cycle Union (ACU), the governing body of British Motorcycle Sport, and the event will be marshalled by the members of the Cheshire Grasstrack Club. 

To ensure safety and minimise disruption to the local community, the track perimeter will be fenced with heavy duty plastic mesh, with additional safety rope and post fencing, and all machines will be examined to ensure compliance with ACU handbook regulations, which states sound must not exceed 81db. The track will be carefully dismantled following the event to ensure no trace remains. 

Attendees will be able to enjoy refreshments at the food and drinks court adjacent to the track area, where stalls from trade interests and sponsors will also be available along with the funfair.  

The first race each day will begin at 12.30pm. Admission is free to the public, though donations are welcomed and would be greatly appreciated.
