Organisers of the Beach Race in Weston-super-Mare say conditions are perfect. Early showers gave way to brilliant sunshine for the Youth 65cc event this morning featuring boys and girls from 7 to 10.
The centrepiece today is the adult quad and sidecar race. Last year's winner, Paul Winlow, is back and admits he faces tough competition. Day 2 tomorrow includes the Youth Quad race and solo events.
