EVENT OVERVIEW:

Welcome to WSW EVENTS in partnership with the phenomenon of the U.K. Motoring World – RACE THE WAVES at The Royal Hall Bridlington Spa, and on the foreshore outside The Royal Hall on Bridlington Sands.

Save the dates for your diary Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th 2021 to enjoy both Race The Waves and The Royal Hall too!

This Family Friendly event is absolutely free entry so no advance tickets are required, no admission fee to pay on the door and no wristbands to purchase or 'stamp on your hand' needed to enjoy the spectacular Race The Waves event and Car and Bike Display outside, or to peruse the fabulous Retail Emporium, Entertainment and Vintage Motorbike Exhibition inside, what's not to love!

INTRODUCTION:

A veritable celebration of vehicles, retro, and where the past is the future, Backfire Promotions and Race The Waves in partnership with WSW Events are all in one place for all of your leisure pleasure, automotive excellence, and Steampunk shopping and sonic fix, all in the exceptionally beautiful surroundings of the Royal Hall and Foreshore and Sands, Bridlington.

Inside The Royal Hall in Bridlington Spa will feature around 60 Purveyors of the finest Steampunk, Alternative and Goth Stands, Automotive Memorabilia Stands etc Live Entertainment, Tea Room, Bars, Vintage Scooters and Classic Bike Exhibition and much more.

Outside The Royal Hall on the Foreshore and Sands is a truly Retro experience and will feature vehicles exhibiting and riding on the sands in an old fashioned manner, and a veritable display of Rat Rods, Hot Rods, Vehicles and Bikes for example.

A dedicated Food Court will be established between the Spa and RNLI Station on the foreshore concourse where literally thousands of attendees pass through between the racing on the beach and the Royal Hall.

Thousands lined the Bridlington foreshore for our previous events to enjoy this unique experience, and massive crowds are expected as the advertising and promotion (and race entries) is literally worldwide.

TAKING PART ON THE BEACH – PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:

Race the Waves is about being inclusive and the taking part, where everyone involved from the audience to the entrants gives of themselves to create an engaging atmosphere.

The BACKFIRE invitation to run vehicles along the Bridlington Sands is indeed a privilege and not bestowed lightly to those we wish to engage.

Everyone’s a winner who takes part with the display on the beach, as they all have made the huge contribution and effort to conquer the playing field which Mother Nature has served us for our abuse until she retrieves with her briny veil.

RULES: there are no rules, rather Respect and Gentlemanly conduct to all which is paramount to our BACKFIRE events.

Race the Waves at Bridlington is a phenomenon in the UK motoring world. We have created a Retro event originally styled towards the 1950s.

This allowed for the inclusion of later constructions to be involved, especially custom builds. Period correct vehicles from earlier years are most welcome but again not in a stock form (unless produced for racing)

For 2021 we are embracing 'The New ROARING 20's'...more exciting details to follow so keep checking on the page for updates!

Attire.. ladies and gentlemen we value our event visuals and the resulting photography, therefore Retro attire is of paramount importance to the beach engagement. Our audience will be encouraged towards a Retro dress code too.

TRADING INFORMATION – PLEASE READ CAREFULLY:
