2016/17 Events

The PKA strongly encourages you to take out PKA membership and insurance through the British Kitesports Association, because as well as supporting the Parakart Association it also provides you with third party liability insurance (including competitor to competitor), personal accident cover, and a low excess on claims. PKA members will also benefit from a £5 discount off their race fees compared to non-members.

Other pre-approved insurance policies will continue to be accepted for PKA events in 2017/18, currently approved insurance providers include: SPKA, SWATK and CLSC. If you do not yet have insurance, it is also possible to apply for temporary 7 day insurance from the BKSA, although we would recommend that everyone is insured at all times while participating in power kite sports.

Anyone that can travel in control of a buggy and kite can race, take a look at our Try Kite Buggy Racing page to find out how to take part.
