Towergate Insurance Partners HydroGarden Weston Beach Race
RHL Activities is pleased to announce that following its association with the Thor British Youth National Championship one of Britain’s leading insurance brokers, Towergate Insurance, will now partner the HydroGarden Weston Beach Race, which takes place on 13-15 October 2017.
The Motorsport North division of Towergate, which is based in Manchester and has over 50 collective years of experience in dealing with the requirements of motorsport associations, promoters, clubs, teams, individuals, circuits and tracks has formed a strong relationship with RHL Activities over the years. The insurance experts will now further extend its relationship with the company following on from its involvement at the grass roots of the sport with the Thor British Youth National series, to being involved with the biggest off-road event in the UK, the HydroGarden Weston Beach Race.
With over 70,000 people attending the race over the course of the weekend, as well as the 1,000 plus competitors that will take on the grueling yet bonkers sand dune course, which is comprised with a huge long straight, this event is fitting for Towergate to become involved with as so many passionate fans head to the Weston-Super-Mare race annually. Not only do amateur racers get a rare opportunity to compete with the pros, but youngsters and quad riders also get to compete in front of a bumper crowd in some of the toughest conditions, which RHL believes is an important part of the development of the next generation of racers.
With Towergate Insurance’s entrepreneurial approach while aiming for the highest professional standards at all times, the vision was synonymous with that of RHL Activities and its goals for motorsport events in the UK. It’s an exciting prospect for the Insurance broker, as Towergate is looking forward to being involved with the biggest off-road motorsport event in the UK.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity for Towergate to be involved with the biggest off-road event on the UK calendar, the HydroGarden Weston Beach Race. We have a superb relationship with RHL Activities, and have enjoyed working with the Thor British Youth National series throughout this year. I have known Gareth for over five years, and we have worked closely with him and the RHL Activities team on many events as their trusted insurance advisors. We are really looking forward to being part of this huge event later in the year,” said Dawn Luby, Towergate Motorsport Manager North
As one of the largest corporate, commercial, SME and specialist personal insurance providers in the UK, Towergate’s range of products for businesses, comprised with its friendly, knowledgeable, no-nonsense approach to insurance, risk and specialist skills with teams of highly trained experts make the brand a perfect choice when looking for bespoke insurance products, particularly in the motorsport sector.
“We have been working with Dawn and the Towergate Insurance team for some time on our events, and we believe we are getting an incredibly high standard of service for something that is now so important for all aspects of our business and events. This positive relationship has developed into a strong, commercial partnership that we believe will be beneficial to both parties, and I’m especially pleased that Towergate has decided to extend this further to being part of the HydroGarden Weston Beach Race,” said Gareth Hockey, Director of RHL Activities.
The HydroGarden Weston Beach Race takes place at Weston-Super-Mare on October 13-15. For information and tickets please visit: www.westonbeachrace.com
