The view from our rooms –
Weymouth Lions Club organised the annual Beach Motocross race on 28th October this year. The weather was a little colder and windier than the Beach Volleyball a couple of months earlier, so we elected to view the race from our guest room 1, above the crowds lining the Esplanade. (See our YouTube Channel for previous images and videos). Soon, we shall see the annual Chase the Pudding event, where 100’s of Santas, Elves and Fairies line up to catch the Pudding for Charity.
Several thousand spectators braved the chill to watch a record 364 competitors take part in races for Seniors, Experts, Intermediate and Junior riders. There were countless thrills and spills. Many fallen riders jumped back on thier machines only to fall of at the next jump. It was mayhem but out of the chaos great skills emerged and some well-deserved winners thrilled the watching crowds.

The event raised £1800 for Weymouth and Portland Lions Club and an estimated 20,000 visitors watched the races – FREE ! We would also like to add our congratulations to regular Weymouth commentator, Paul Hardy, on his well-deserved retirement.
