ROTHERHAM petrolheads who love nothing more than a seaside drive to embrace their love of motoring should consider visiting Bridlington’s Race the Waves.

In tribute to a bygone era when UK coastlines were a staging post for world speed record attempts, the May 9 to 12 event hosts a diverse array of high-speed races.

Car racing competitors will pair up to take part in drag races over a 200-yard course on the seaside town’s South Beach.

Motorcycle races, meanwhile, often see groups of four or five race away from the start line together.

Race the Waves’ main races are subject to tide times; however, the weekend-long event also plays host to food, drink and trade stands on the seafront promenade.

Bridlington Lions will also be performing their Rock on the Beach auto show on South Marine Drive between 10am to 4pm, while the Steampunk Emporium will be open at the Spa Royal Hall.
