From 22 Sep to 24 Sep 2023

On the sublime and famous Sword beach of Ouistreham Riva-Bella, the Normandy Beach Race offers a unique show to relive the atmosphere of the mechanical meetings of the 40s and 50s.

A unique vintage event on a historic beach

The Normandy Beach Race is an original and spectacular event!

There are demonstrations over 200 metres from a standing start where classic vehicles compete. American and European cars and motorbikes, pre-1947, make their engines roar and reveal their authentic charms.

Enthusiasts have created this unusual gathering with beach runs that can be seen rather far from our lands. They can usually be found in the United States, England and Denmark.

A supercharged 2023 edition !

In addition to the presence of vintage vehicles, a very special atmosphere reigns on the beach and throughout the Calvados seaside resort.

And to celebrate the great return of the Beach Race, the organisers have prepared a programme (soon to be unveiled!) which will bring Ouistreham Riva-Bella to life for 3 days from 22 to 24 September 2023.

Practical information and full programme on the official website of the event.
