Beach Motocross takes place every year on Weymouth Beach. The Lions Club sponsor the event, which raises £1000’s for charity.

The beach remains closed to the public for the races and marshals keep the competitors safe. Earthmoving equipment constructs huge sand ramps for the bikers to climb and the course winds for about a mile. Top speeds can be as high as 80 mph.
