Sand Racing

Staring in April each year, the sand racing season usually culminates in September. The beaches at Millbrook and St Ouen are ideal for the thrills of the event with junior competitors starting at age 14 and seniors up to 70 all taking part side by side in custom cars, vintage vehicles and sand racing buggies. A variety of motorbike riders also compete on 50cc, speedway and grass track bikes.

Motocross

Sorel Point is a challenging course on Jersey’s north coast at St John, with fantastic views out to the other Channel Islands and towards France. Watch as competitors as young as 6 take part.

Motor Sprint

Watch from the dunes as competitors on bikes, in racing cars, rally cars, modified production cars and karts take part in the 1/4 mile sprint at Five Mile Road, St Brelade. 

Other Motor Sport Events

Jersey is a thriving place for motor sports and holds its own International Motor Festival each June. Four hill climbs taking place during the year in addition to motocross, sand racing, trials and motor sprints. Competitors of all ages take part, many arriving from the Mainland and France to vie for the various categories and titles. In addition to this there is a great vintage motor scene with parades and displays forming part of many of the island celebrations. I wonder how many now-vintage vehicles were in the clip featured below?
