Babs will leave Pendine for a short while this summer
(8 – 17 July) to be at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
Explore Pendine’s famous history as the “Sands of Speed”.
The museum overlooks the long beach famous for attempts
at the world land speed record and motor bike racing.
The main exhibit for July to September is usually 'Babs', the motor car
raced by Parry-Thomas to the world record in 1926.
Babs was buried in Pendine Sands after Thomas died trying to reclaim
the record the following year. She lay there for 42 years until being dug
up and restored to her former glory.
Motor bikes from Pendine’s racing past are also on show.
