The 33rd Edition of the RHL Weston Beach Race set to be bigger and better than ever

The 33rd Edition of the RHL Weston Beach Race set to be bigger and better than ever
With only days to go before thousands of spectators and hundreds of world class motocross and enduro riders descend into Weston Super Mare for the 33rd RHL Weston Beach Race, the excitement is building for what is set to be one of the most spectacular events in its 33 year history.

 

The weekend is packed with races starting on Saturday at 9.30am with the Youth 125 race and ending with the main 3 hour Quad and Sidecar race at 1.30pm.

Sunday continues in the same vain with the 3 hour main solo race kicking off at 1:30pm with hundreds of bikes screaming their way down the North Somerset coastline in front of thousands of fans lining the entire circuit - the full timetable of
races can be viewed below or by clicking here http://rhlactivities.com/events/rhl-beach-race-2015

 

This year many of the UK’s best riders will be hunting for glory including British
MX1 champion and MXGP star Shaun Simpson onboard the Hitachi KTM 450 and beach race legend David Knight who will be hoping to regain his Weston Beach Race crown for a record 9th time.

 

The field is stacked with talent, to pick a winner would be near on impossible but
you can safely say anyone near the front of the pack at the halfway stage with
no misfortune will be a contender for ‘King of Weston.’

 

As well as the races, some of the attractions at this years event include, a fun
fair, Lynch Operator Trails for budding digger drivers, Dougie Lampkin Trials
show, Skyfall zip wire ride, giant TV screens broadcasting interviews with
riders and the fans, the Royal Marines and Tank School and a bigger and better
trade area.

 

This years event is BIG, thousands of fans and spectators are expected on both days, Weston is an event you need to tick off you must see list, 3 hours of intense
and exciting racing from start to finish.

 

Gareth Hockey of RHL Activities: “Everything is looking well ahead of schedule, we have been here on the beach in Weston Super Mare with track build since last
Thursday, the guys from Lynch and the our RHL team are flatout with track build
and preparation. Its looking like one of the best events we’ve done, entry is
back to big numbers in all classes, even the kids races have filled up. Hoping
for the weather to stay as it is, nice and dry with a bit of cloud will be
perfect.”
