  • 2020 Hot Products "Best of the West" Series Updates

    I wanted to give you an update as to my progress with getting events approved and set for the remainder of the 2020 season:

    As previously discussed, I am working with the City of Lake Elsinore to promote 2 races. One in July, scheduled for July 18 & 19 and one on August 15 & 16. The races will be either at Launch Pointe (main beach) or at Elm Grove Beach. I am currently waiting for the City to give me final approval and once that has been ascertained then I will make the formal announcement and open registration. As these will be the only two events prior to the World Finals I trust these will be well attended with large lines! Looking forward to making this happen as soon as I get the final word.

    Next, November 7 & 8 will be the Hot Products Huntington Beach Moto-Surf & Impros Freeride. Again, as soon as the City gives me the final approval I will make a formal announcement and open registration.

    World Finals: Many of you have asked about World Finals and the word I consistently receive from Scott Frazier is that, Yes, there will be a World Finals in October 2020. I don't know the final details of qualifying yet as Scott has indicated that he is working on this aspect and will make an announcement as soon as possible.

    2021 - I should be able to announce the 2021 schedule shortly. I am working hard to solidify dates for the 2021 Hot Products Best of the West Series and we should see at a minimum 2 Surf Races and 2 flat water races, perhaps more, depending on sponsorship and attendance.

    If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email or call me (310) 318-4012 or check the Hot Products Best of the West Series or RPM Racing Enterprises FB pages.

    Stay safe and keep yer fingers crossed as I think we're going to be racing and soon!

    Well......we were on track for approval for July 18 & 19 for Elm Grove Beach in Lake Elsinore but as I'm sure you all know the Covid 19 spike that we're currently going through has caused many counties to "lock" back down. Riverside County being one of them.
    So, in speaking with the City of Lake Elsinore they have indicated that August 15 & 16 is our target date for Elm Grove Beach, Lake Elsinore. This would be the Hot Products Best of the West Lake Elsinore Open, again provided that this spike is just that, a spike and not a prolonged outbreak. If this is the case then we will be racing. All we can do now is hope that this dissipates so I can get the final approval that we almost had for the July event.
    Please stay safe and know I'm doing everything I can to make this happen but as I'm sure you're aware it's a little out of my control.

      Racer's, it seems I can't catch a break...... received this a short time ago from the City of Lake Elsinore:

      Good Morning Ross,
      After careful review and consideration by management and staff, we will not be able to proceed with approving your event at this time. Due to the continuous changes with COVID-19 restrictions, the City will not be permitting any Special Events until further notice. We apologize for this inconvenience that it may cause in your promotion and event schedule. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this challenging time. This is a great event and we look forward to being able to work with on future events.
      Special Events Coordinator
      City of Lake Elsinore

      So......August 15 & 16 at Lake Elsinore is now cancelled. I'm still looking for active venues or possible reschedule the Elsinore event to early-Mid September should the State open back up. I will continue to try to put something together and keep everyone in the loop.

      This wasn't for lack of trying but it would appear Covid 19 has continued to ruin the 2020 racing season.

      Stay safe!!
