Doncaster has once again been chosen to host two international jet-ski events later this year.

Lakeside will be the venue for the Jettribe Euro Cup 2 from August 22-24.

It will also host the British Jet Ski Championship Final on September 5-7, coinciding with the start of the St Leger Festival.

Both events are likely to feature Hatfield jet-ski star Brad Rickaby.

Doncaster’s selection follows the successful hosting of British and European competitions last year.

Bob Johnson, Doncaster’s councillor for regeneration and growth, said: “With over 90 teams competing from all over Europe these are fantastic events that certainly put Doncaster on the map.

“Competitors, tourists and visitors require hotel accommodation which in turn will bring income to the borough through catering, food outlets, retail and entertainment facilities which really help to boost the Doncaster economy.”
