Off-road sport boosts local economies

The Skegness Annual Beach Race, which takes place 7th and 8th November, is helping to extend the tourist season, according to a report by East Lindsey District Council.   Last year’s race attracted a record number of entrants (313) and over 20,000 spectators – the largest number to date.  The event is popular with both out of town visitors and local residents, injecting nearly three quarters of a million pounds into the local economy.   The race is organised by the Amateur Motorcycle Association (AMCA), a not for profit membership organisation which exists to promote grass roots participation in off-road motorcycle sport, particularly motocross.   The report includes testimonials from the Town Manager, local Chamber of Commerce, retailers and hoteliers, who all support the race.
