To create the opportunity for more riders to take part in the much anticipated Mitsubishi Motors Grassroots Championships at Badminton, British Eventing has extended entries for the BE100 section at the 2014 event.
Riders that received a result in the top 35 percent of a Mitsubishi Motors Grassroots Regional Final qualifier in 2013 will now be eligible to enter next year’s Championships rather than the initial 20 percent.
BE Sports Operations Manager Chris Farr said: “We are extremely grateful to Mitsubishi Motors in the UK and the Organising team of the Mitsubishi Motors Grassroots Championships for opening up more opportunities for riders to take part in this fantastic event for aspiring amateur riders next year.”
Qualify for 2015
Those riders aiming for the BE100 Championships in 2015 will also stand a greater chance of qualifying for a Regional Final in the 2014 season with the percentage of riders eligible to compete in a Regional Final going up from the top 10 percent of competitors in the class to the top 20 percent.
