Motor enthusiasts approached about meeting in Skegness


Motor enthusiasts visiting Skegness are to be asked about holding official rallies in the resort.

Car and motorbike owners who have gathered unofficially in the town will be approached by a senior police officer about organising more formal events.

Inspector Andy Morrice received backing for the idea at a meeting of Skegness Town Council last week.

Insp Morrice said: “We could invite them to stay for a weekend, offer the use of a car park and organise a proper event. Controls could be put in place and have engines turned off at 10pm.”

Coun Maggie Gray said: “Anything that brings people to Skegness is a good thing, it should be open all year. A car rally would be brilliant for Skegness, bring out the enthusiasts who will spend money in the town. It is a spectacle that people would want to come and see.”
