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 2016/17, 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.
After two rounds of terrible conditions the curse seems to be lifted and the last two rounds at Brean and Hoylake have produced some results that mean we have a national series! The competition is as challenging as ever and with the mix of de-power and fixed bridle the days of predictable results are over. Racing will take place on both days of each round and all insured pilots are welcome. The next event is:
