Pendennis Castle Road Races

Pendennis Castle Road Races

On the west side of the hill on which Pendennis Castle stands, alongside the coast road is a plaque commemorating the Pendennis Castle Road Races. The plaque was put in position in 2002 by the Pendennis Motorcycle and Light Car Club. These races were the first motorcycle races to be run on public roads in Britain and used a 1.5 miles circuit around Castle Drive. The races were held from 1931 until 1937 and a lap record was achieved by G.E.Rowley of Sidcup on a 346 AJS in 1 minute 44 seconds.
