Issue 72: Buggy Newz

Pembrey Beach, South Wales

The Parakart Association National Race Series 2010 continued with Round 3 being held on Pembrey beach, South Wales this weekend 15/16th May.

These results were unfortunatly not available as I prepared this article, but the racing is really hotting up in the Masters group between Peter Lynn (Vapour) and PKD (Combat) !

Ozone, Libre and Pansh have 3 fliers each, and a new kite, Cooper (Cooperkites) from the Netherlands, have 1.

As you can see in the Open Class that few racers are sponsored, and this may account for the decline in racers registered this year. From 21 in 2009 to only 12 this year. Racing is not cheap and even though racers from this group hope to impress and gain sponsorship to move into the Masters Group, money is tight!

This year the balance of power has been broken by the newly re-invigorated Peter Lynn powerkite designs….in this case the Vapour!

Last year Ozone, PKD, Libre and Pansh all featured in the top 10 of the Masters Class but now they have more to race against!

In 2009 the Masters Class overall results where…

  1. Pete Swann – PKD.
    (running 2nd this year with PKD.)
  2. Andy Lavelle – Ozone.
    (Andy has switched to Peter Lynn and is currently 1st)
  3. Graham Steel – GIN.
    (switched back to Ozone, currently 12th)
  4. D.Trainor – PKD.
    (running 4th. PKD)
  5. T. Aggett – Libre.
    (running 9th. Libre)
  6. R. McGavin – PKD.
    (running 5th. PKD)
  7. G. Wass – Libre.
    (running 23rd. Libre)
  8. Simon Bailey – Pansh.
    (running 3rd switched to PKD)
  9. Mark Hoyland – PKD.
    (not racing this year)
  10. M Cook – Ozone.
    (running 10th. Ozone)

Interestingly M. Job is up from finishing 21st last year, to running 7th this year after switching from U-Turn to Peter Lynn.

And C. Barker is up from 18th last year to running 8th this year after switching from U-Turn to PKD.

2010 is certainly set to be a very interesting racing year as a greater choice of kite / buggy combinations makes for more exciting racing. But the costs associated with the top end racing scene, along with the lure of the freedom of kitesurfing, have affected the numbers drawn to racing. The PKA has recently seen some increased interest so look out for the next set of results as the race is on!
