100 days to go & StreetVelodrome Worthing is racing ahead
All available sponsorship opportunities for Worthing's inaugural StreetVelodrome event have been enthusiastically taken up by local businesses, as residents' registration numbers pour in.
The StreetVelodrome Series is a radically different, free to attend, event which is being brought to Beach House Grounds on the first weekend of August. Using a pro-grade pop-up track, amateur cyclists will be pitting their pace against professional riders in a national competition which will be televised around the globe.
For StreetVelodrome Worthing, six breakaway businesses leapt at the chance to sponsor the event, putting their brand in front of the event’s audience. They are:
Gold Sponsors Bowers & Wilkins Group
Parafix Tapes & Conversions Ltd
Silver Sponsor Sussex Transport
Bronze Sponsors ETI Ltd Nuffield Health Worthing Pier Events Ltd
Scott Marshall, Director for the Economy at Adur and Worthing Councils, says:
"Strong support for sponsoring the StreetVelodrome shows how highly anticipated this event is in the town.
"Having such immediate interest from the local business community proves that the Council made the right decision to invest in bringing this event to Worthing, supporting the tourist economy and delivering value to the local businesses."
The first weekend of August won’t just be about watching riders go head-to-head around the banked track in two thrilling days of displays of sporting prowess - local businesses are also being invited to bring their trade stands to the event. Costing just £75 per pitch per day, these trade stands will give businesses an unrivalled opportunity to get in with the crowds and competitors.

Local residents and visitors who want to get onto the track can come along on the Saturday where there will be plenty of opportunity to get in line for one of the ‘have a go’ sessions for free.
Carl Thompson, Series Director for StreetVelodrome, says:
"80 amateur riders have now entered the free registration ballot for race entries at Round 5 of StreetVelodrome Series to be held in Worthing. From those entering the ballot a lucky few will win guaranteed race entries.
"The take-up has been absolutely astounding - I don’t think that we’ve ever booked up so many of our race entries so fast!
"The weekend is shaping up to have something for everyone - whether competing or not - and I can’t wait to see who from Worthing and the surrounding areas makes it to our Grand Final in London at the end of August."
Entries into the race registration ballot are currently being accepted through theStreetVelodrome website - (www.streetvelodrome.co.uk).
The weekend is free to attend and will give visitors plenty of opportunities to experience other attractions, see circus workshops or simply have a bite to eat or a drink at the pop up bar whilst the action takes place.
