The 2012 running of the Beach Race at Weston will mark the 30th anniversary of what has grown to be the biggest off-road event on the UK calendar. To mark three decades of racing on the Weston-super-Mare seafront, RHL Activities are planning to produce a display with photographs and exhibits dating back to the first ever event at Weston.
And they need your help… If you have any photographs, race numbers or anything else connected with the Beach Race at Weston over the last 30 years, but particularly any memorabilia from the early years of the event, then Gareth Hockey and his team would like to hear from you.
If you have any memorabilia that you think is of interest, or something that may even for the centrepiece of the display, then please drop Gareth an email to [email protected]. RHL are after all sorts, big and small, to mark the 30th anniversary, so drop them a line…
Also this year’s RHL Beach Race at Weston will feature two camping areas right at the heart of the event, just a stone’s throw away from the infamous dunes course on which more than 1500 riders will do battle on 13th and 14th October.
The Platinum Camping area is located on the lawns of the Weston-super-Mare seafront, adjacent to the main pedestrian access point at the Tropicana. The Platinum Camping area is open to motorhomes, camper vans and self-sufficient converted vans and offers unrivalled access to the biggest off-road event on the UK Calendar.
The popular Quad Village will also return to Weston this year. The Quad Village is a dedicated camping area open only to those competitors competing at the 2012 Beach Race at Weston on four wheels. Immensely popular in the past, the Quad Village fills up extremely quickly, so competitors at this year’s event are urged to book now to avoid disappointment.
“The Platinum Campsite and the Quad Village will, once again, be right at the heart of the RHL Beach Race at Weston,” explains Gareth Hockey, director of RHL Activities. “If you really want to live and breathe the Beach Race at Weston then camping on site really is the best way to do it. Campers will be just a stone’s throw from all the action on track and conveniently located for all the off-track entertainment we have planned to mark the 30th anniversary of the biggest off-road event in Great Britain. I’m quite tempted to bring a camper van myself!”
Pitches in the Platinum Campsite and the Quad Village can be purchased online through the official event website at www.rhlactivities.com or by calling RHL Activities on 01873 840640.
