I always though Newborough forest would be good, for another race location its very similar to pembrey long beach huge forest full of fire roads some single track & good parking.

    Not sure exactly what you need but they do sand yachting on Hoylake beach on the Wirral. That needs a long stretch of flat sand.

    Iv'e ridden along it on several times my cx bike can get up to 25 mph if the sand is in the right condition.

    Soft sand in places though but I only had 32mm tyres. Sand type & firmness seems to vary alot from day to day.
