Quad Bike Event Falls Victim to Dorset Storms


6:34pm 14th February 2014

One of Weymouth's popular beach events has been forced to cancel due to the persistent storms.

The Weymouth Beach X, that features Quad Bikes, Motocross bikes and high speed boats, was due race around the seafront next Saturday (22nd Feb) and Sunday.

Organisers say the main concern is for the safety of both competitors, trade exhibitors and spectators, with potential wind damage to the temporary structures required  for the event including trade stands, security fencing and signage to name a few.

The storms that Weymouth has already endured has caused significant damage to the beach and moved high volumes of sand to one end of the beach, this would also cause severe restrictions with the course build.

Organisers are so keen to return to Weymouth after a successful inaugural event last year they’ve already confirmed a new date with the Borough Council, November 15th and 16th this year.
