Southport Ocean Revival Sprint 2023

We have been contacted by Mike Ashcroft; Chairman & Director of Aintree Circuit Club regarding an event on September 16th. The event will be see a ‘new’ sprint event at Southport along the Marine Drive.
I say ‘new’ but actualy is is the revival of an event held long ago. And that leads to a question does anyony out there recall the original event back in the 70’s (as I recall) where the Marine Drive was used as a sprint venue and can let us have details. Any details would be appreciated.
In the meantime the link below takes you to details of this years event.
