May 14 and 15 2022 are the dates for this years races.
Usually have a great bunch of cool cars.
Cool British hot rods!
Looks like an amazing time. Im hoping to be there in 2023.
Ever follow any of @Mart threads?
be sure to take pics & post here
just in the process of swapping the seats for a cage in my buddies recently revamped coupe in preparation for this weekend . hope to get some pics of some fine hot rod material.
Must be something happening at Pendine by now.. Cool cars, cruising and race cars on trailers, anything? JW
She’s on now, wish we were back there, fu Ken pandemic!
I am there - although access is unfortunately limited as I do not have a car that is modified enough to join the VHRA so no pit access, I will however get better shots and video tomorrow!
Great meet! These are parts 1 and 2 of Mart's Pendine trip and meet from 2021
Great thank you for your efforts.
As a note to others interested in seeing more they can search you tube for PENDINE 2022 and get more content
Once again, thank you.
I have been a member of the VHRA for quite a while now. They are very particular about the cars they let in. I originally applied with my 30 Tudor which was great in every way except I was running coil overs in the rear. No acceptance. I then applied with my 32 Bantam hot rod correct in every way, it was built in 1962. No acceptance. The Bantam is based on the British Austin so not a true American car. I then was building a Willy's touring which they liked and I was in. I traded the Willys for a 31 Model A roadster pickup, keeping it a banger but a nicely modified engine, suspension and wheels. Hope I am still good. We had reservations for 2019 for Pendine, but COVID put a stop to that, still had to pay for the accomodation. They really know how to do it over there.
Thank you for your “live” coverage. I will be following.
Hello guys, unfortunately I wasn't able to attend Pendine Sands this weekend but until there is more material posted you can check my photos from last year if you want, @ http://www.dwrenched.com/2021/07/event-pendine-sands-hot-rod-races-2021.html
As i post this it is 8.30 pm there on the 1st day and not really anything!! JW
My Friend Doug Brennan drove his 34 coupe from Scotland for it.
The best thing there from the photos I saw was the Aluminum streamliner from Sweden
Here are some more pictures from Pendine,I have video that I will sort and upload later - the red coupe is my mate Jamie's car........much engineered to make things work
With that new monstrosity being built to overlook the beach, I sure hope the future of this great event isn't jeopardized!
Thanks for the photos!!
As far as I,m aware, the local council fully support this event as pendine sands has been used historically for land speed races since 30,s? and the area benefits from the tourism events like this attracts.
here is the link to a ( pretty bad to be honest) video I have made
ok we would love to know more on this creation.
Glad to hear that. There are so many instances of drag racing venues being shut down after the land around them is developed into housing developments surround them, and the new homeowners bitch to the politicians!
I believe the car hails from Sweden. Picture of engines stolen from facebook page of Nick Pettitt. Over 300 pictures of the event including several of this machine.
Thanks @Dominick Hide , certainly a beast. Unfortunately I don’t do fake book.
The question is ,"Did Mart and his Tudor make the event?"
Is that a straight 16?
It is indeed.
Sweet......not so little
Yes, 2 in-line 8 cylinder Buick engines coupled to make a 16 cylinder in-line beast...the whole car was built from scratch by Glenn and his team from Sweden. It was finished just days before Pendine and made its first shake-down runs there...
