HydroGarden Weston Beach Race - 1 February 2018

RHL Activities decision on the Youth Quad Class for the 2018 HydroGarden Weston Beach Race

Keywords:


It is with regret that RHL Activities has to announce that despite its campaign to see the Youth Quad class reinstated into the HydroGarden Weston Beach Race this year, the decision has been made to withdraw the category from the 2018 event.
 
The RHL team was hoping that with its promotion of the class over recent months they would be able to obtain 30 pledges by the end of January to ensure the running of the youth quad category. However, with this not in place and only half of the pledges required being received, the deadline has unfortunately been reached and RHL Activities has no choice other than to omit the class from this year’s event, which takes place on 19-21 October, as the planning and implementation of all classes is well underway.
 
RHL Activities remains optimistic that perhaps it would be possible for the class to run again in future, and would like to thank those who did support the pledge. RHL wants to reiterate its support of youth racing, and is disappointed with the outcome relating to this matter. 
 
Gareth Hockey, Director of RHL Activities, the promoter behind the HydroGarden Weston Beach Race commented, “Following a strong campaign to see the Youth Quad class reintroduced into the 2018 HydroGarden Weston Beach Race we didn’t receive the level of support required, so unfortunately the class will not run this year. It’s a great shame as we at RHL Activities are passionate about the development of young talent and youth racing as a whole, but unfortunately on this occasion it is not possible to run with the amount of potential entries. We hope in the future to see the young-guns of the quad world battling the beach, and will continue an open dialogue with these riders.”
