    Dear Keen enthusiast.
    I see you are interested in sand racing at Morecambe and Heysham. How near they are to each other I do not know
    I am but of an earlier time, the mid 1920s, my Father Basil Davenport won several sprints on the sands of Morecambe. As I have gleaned my Info from cups won and the motoring press, and as he lived in Macclesfield I feel there must have been quite a few meetings there. Hoping that you know someone or yourself for help, as I have a large data base with over 700 photos and details.
    In anticipation
    Peter Davenport

      Sorry for my late reply, my connection with sand racing is only on the Wirral, and not really in an official capacity, as kids we used to take our bikes to the beach, and normally got chased by the beach patrol

    I apologise, he raced and won on the Wirral in the 1924 to 1930. I got mixed up with Morecambe as there was sand racing there as well, and at Southport. For both places i.e. Morecambe and the Wirral, I have notes about 2 meetings at both places, but there must have been more, as closing down roads was prohibited after 1924

      WORevents plan was to re-start wirral sand racing, but covid has put a end to that plan for the time being, hopefully later this year it will be restarted
