Pendine Sands Hot Rod Races, Carmarthen Bay, Wales, UK, June 17 and 18, 2023

Described as ‘Britain’s birthplace of speed’, Pendine Sands is home to the Vintage Hot rod Association’s annual Hot Rod Races. Only open to VHRA members and their pre-1949 hot rods and customs, a flag drop start sends the hot rods away on a half-mile run up, followed by an electronically timed flying 1/16th of a mile. They can hit speeds in excess of 130mph; David Sollis went 130.12mph in his Model A Tudor to win the coveted King of the Beach award for 2023. (Alistair Davidson pics)
