CARDIFF VW SPONSOR WESTON
June 15 2007.


The 25th anniversary Weston Super Mare beach race on October 20th/21st has received a major boost with the news that Cardiff Volkswagen has renewed its sponsorship of the youth classes for the fourth consecutive year. The car and commercial vehicle dealership, that represents Volkswagen throughout South East Wales, has consistently built on its partnership with the event since 2002 and has once again increased its commitment to tomorrow's off road motorcycle stars.

In addition to providing the trophies for the top three in both classes, they will award medals to all riders who finish the races. In conjunction with Ray Hockey Racing, Cardiff Volkswagen will also supply a set of  No Fear racing kit to the winners of both the 65cc and 85cc races.

Managing Director, David Pugh-Jones, himself a keen motorcycle rider, said, "We have enjoyed our sponsorship of the beach race for the last three years, and it has also been a commercially successful activity. But most importantly, we see the inclusion of youth classes as a high priority for the personal and competitive development of these young people."

Gareth Hockey, Director of event promoters RHL Activities, is understandably delighted that Cardiff Volkswagen has signed up for a fourth year, "David has put a lot into the youth side of the beach race over the last three years and I am extremely grateful for his input. It has allowed us to develop this element of the event to a point where we have a very high entry level and good competitive races. We are all looking forward to working with Cardiff Volkswagen again at this year's silver anniversary event."
