The Race

Next Rendez-vous: September 2025

At the Normandy Beach Race we want to maximize the fun of a memorable event while racing, but not at the expense of security.

Drivers need to comply for themselves and their vehicles with a balance of both safety features, appearance and performance.

Run for fun … A successful Normandy Beach Race is an event with no accidents
and memories for ever in the driver’s and spectator’s head.
