Pendine Sands and Museum of Speed

The seven mile expanse of sands at Pendine was the scene of numerous World Land Speed Record attempts between the two World Wars. In 1924 Sir Malolm Campbell set a new World record  on the sands in his V12 Sunbeam Bluebird and went on to beat it on two further occasions here. In 1927 J G Parry-Thomas was killed trying to beat Campbell's 175 M.P.H. and his car Babs was buried in the sands. The car has been excavated and restored and is now the centrepiece of Pendine's Museum of Speed.  Pendine is situated along the coast West of Laugharne.
