The event begins Thursday, June 16 and ends Sunday, June 19 following a two-year absence due to the pandemic.

To kick off Race the Waves, which is a free event, a cruise will depart from the Yorkshire Museum of Farming in York and end with a parade through Bridlington’s Old Town and High Street.

On Friday 17th June the cars will be located at Church Green in the Old Town to accommodate beach racing drivers (drivers and racers) and in the evening there will be a cruise from Bridlington Old Town to Sewerby which will end with an exhibit vehicle outside the Expanse Hotel on North Marine Drive.

Hotrods and bikes will perform exhibition races on the sand.

On Saturday and Sunday, beach racing riders will be on the south beach with hotrod-style vehicles and motorcycles, performing 1/8 mile exhibition runs along the sand from a marked start.

A spokesperson for the event said: “Race the Waves was designed as a free tourist attraction in 2018.

“The day was a huge success, prompting the East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Events Department to support a stand-alone event in 2019.

“The 2019 event has extended to two days of use of the South Beach and we have partnered with the organizers of Whitby Steampunk Weekend to run an additional attraction within the spa.

“Entries for the beach race came from all over the UK and a number of Europe as well. Visitor numbers increased dramatically and all looked bright for 2020. Unfortunately the pandemic put end to Race the Waves for 2020 and 2021.

“This year there will be trade and charity stalls as well as the Bridlington Gold Radio roadshow on the promenade, a Saturday afternoon charity auction at the RNLI station and a Steampunk emporium within the Spa to support the event. .

“The spa is having two evenings of entertainment and there are three evenings of ‘Rockin The Beach’ entertainment with Mark Phillips.

“Last, but not least, we invite kids to get interested in their Tot Rod races.”
