After last year’s success, Subaru is pleased to announce it will once again be supporting a National Series in Point-to-Pointing, the Subaru Restricted Series.
Supporting races for horses that have not won any races under the rules of any recognised Racing Authority other than a Maiden or Hunt Members race, the Subaru Restricted Series will run across 50 national qualifiers.
The inaugural meeting is the Cambridge University United Hunts Club at Cottenham on 29th November culminating with a Grand Final over 2m 7f at Stratford-on-Avon Hunter Chase on 20th May 2016. Spanning six months, it is the longest of the current national series. The series boasts a prize fund of £10,000.
Further to the growing number of qualifying races in the Subaru Restricted Series, Subaru is pleased to announce that it will be extending its support and sponsorship of Point to Point with the addition of the Subaru Restricted Championships and the overall points winner will receive the use of a Subaru Forester for a year.
Chief Executive of the Point-to-Point Authority, Clare Hazell, commented: “It has been a great experience working alongside Subaru during their first season of sponsorship and, most importantly, to know that the partnership has been successful for us all. We are very grateful to them for agreeing to support almost double the number of qualifiers – 50 - for the season ahead.” Ilona Barnett, General Manager of Stratford Racecourse, added, “Stratford Racecourse is delighted that Subaru is once again supporting this exciting National Point to Point Series, which culminates here at Stratford on the 20th May 2016.”
Paul Tunnicliffe, Managing Director for Subaru (UK) commented: “Subaru trades on its reputation as a vehicle which appeals to those who live or work in rural areas. This association will help our dealers across the UK to integrate themselves into their local communities and allow people to see our All-wheel Drive vehicles in their perfect setting. We look forward to working with the Point-to- Point Authority to help build wider interest and support for the sport.”
