WORDS: Kevin Arlott
The action is not only on the water now as we go into winter. The Parakart Association kicked off the 2018/19 Kite Buggy Racing Series at Brean with four races over the weekend of 20 & 21 October.
Reigning champion from 2017/18, Ryan McGavin emerged as leader. Having lost the first race to challenger Mark Sherlock, Ryan soon recovered and took the next three races and claim the weekend prize and the lead in the Championship. Mark follows in second and local buggier Barry Cook took third overall by a tiny margin after almost equal points with fourth place, Matt Job.
The kite buggy racing dates for the rest of 2018 and 2019 have now been announced. Take a look at the PKA website for more details: www.parakartassociation.co.uk
