A load of quad bikes will be kicking up the sand on Weymouth beach next month (February).
Dozens of riders are coming to town to put on a series of high octane races along the seafront.
The event that runs from Saturday 9th through to Sunday 10th has taken over 2 years to plan.
This inaugural quad bike event follows the great success of the Lions Beach Motocross event held in October each year.
ORE Events spokesman Duncan Irons said: "The Dickies Workwear Weymouth Beach race is a new annual event".
"We have competitors from the age of six years old to 72 years old travelling from all over the UK and a number of international competitors.
"We will be working with the local community and businesses to leave a positive footprint and increase the visitors to Weymouth at this normally quiet time of year."
