Sand Race - Skegness





Sand Race - Skegness, July 18, 1931

One of the very few race meetings held in England, other than Brooklands, this event took place on the sands at Skegness on July 17-18, 1931 with prominent amateur drivers handling the cars. Fast time was set up by N.A. Carr, driving a Bugatti, in the one-lap "Unlimited" final, when he covered the one and a half miles in 1 min. 35 2/5 secs. The five-lap handicap was gained by A.N. Spottiswoode, also on a Bugatti, in 7 mins. 55 secs., running in the racing car class, but Sadlier Jackson beat this time in the sports car class with another Bugatti, clocking 7 mins. 13 secs.
