Britain to host Euro Beachcross round

Britain is to host a round of the new FIM Europe Beachcross European Cup on October 18-20 but no venue has yet been announced. The event, a week after the Weston Beach race, is not like a marathon three-hour beach race but a motocross-style, moto-type event that takes place on beach.

FIM Europe has announce the new Beachcross European Cup will be run by a new promoter called FORGIT Ltd. The agreement is for the organisation of a European Cup in 2024 and a European Championship for 2025 and 2026.

The European Beachcross Cup will start on March 3 at Soverato in Italy, the birthplace of the European Grand Trophy which will retain its historic name. The next rounds will cross the most evocative beaches in Europe, passing through the United Kingdom on October 18-20 and another stop in Europe on October 26-27.

Rinaldo Tirotta, President Stilaro Racing, said: “I thank the FIM Europe for the collaboration. An idea born in 2003 and the constant dedication has today created a new title with a fresh perspective, made possible also thanks to Claudio Bernardinelli, whose commitment has contributed to the realization of this new adventure.”

Vincenzo Tirotta, Forgit Ltd Director, said: “I’m enthusiastic about this new agreement with the FIM Europe. For this new project, we want to change the vision and the method which until now has made participation in an event prohibitive for teams and riders on a global level. In addition to the sporting celebration, the Beachcross European Cup, in fact, pays particular attention to the needs of the riders, considering the high costs associated with a competition of this stature. In line with this awareness, a logistical strategy aimed at facilitating riders to participate more easily in the event in every aspect, through the creation of an all-inclusive package that eliminates the stress of a competition and transforms it into an experience for the participants.”
