Hycontrol Sponsors Rider at Weston Beach Race

Hycontrol is the proud sponsor of a Redditch-based dirtbike rider named Alex who took part in the Weston Beach Race over the weekend of October 18-20, 2019. While Hycontrol is all about promoting safety, some of this looks pretty dangerous - but very exciting! Congratulations Alex!

Every year the beach at Weston-Super-Mare undergoes a massive transformation. Giant mountains of sand are formed into a track of unbelievable difficulty. Hundreds of thousands of visitors come to Weston each year to witness the spectacle that is the Weston Beach Race. 2019 is the 37th year of this fantastic race.

The event is recognised as the biggest motorsport event on the UK calendar each year. The event is compared to the London Marathon, with amateurs and professional riders competing in together over two days of action-packed racing from riders competing on two wheels and four wheels.

The youngest competitors are 7 years old and the oldest rider in 2018 was 72 years old!
