P1 Yorkshire Grand Prix of the Sea

P1 returns to Scarborough’s beautiful South Bay on 2-3 September, for the 2017 SuperStock UK Championship finale!

<5r><4r><3r>The North Yorkshire coast will be the final P1 SuperStock destination at the beginning of September as Scarborough hosts a championship round for a third successive year. With its historic harbour and castle headland, the town’s South Bay offers a natural amphitheatre for racing and for spectators.

“We are delighted that the popularity of P1 has grown year on year, and in 2017 we are looking to expand the visitor experience to showcase the best of the Yorkshire Coast” says Janet Deacon, Area Tourism Director for Welcome to Yorkshire.

Named “Queen of the Yorkshire Coast”, Scarborough’s award-winning South Bay beach is the ideal spot to watch our racers attempt to get their campaign off to a roaring start.

Besides the great motorsport action, Scarborough has plenty of sight and sounds to keep everyone entertained throughout the race weekend, and beyond. The Yorkshire coast’s largest holiday destination has multiple attractions spread across the town and seafront – harbours, theatres, cinemas, markets, museums, a busy town centre, beautiful parks and plenty more. For more information, please visit www.discoveryorkshirecoast.com/scarborough

It's the perfect spot to get the P1 season rolling, as our racers look to cement their own place in the history books.

Don’t miss out on all the action!
