Something of a fraught weekend, and for me, one best forgotten (and actually, parts of it already are... ten minutes unconscious does that!) but I keep getting asked for the on-board footage of my high-speed accident so here's a 5 minute video of the weekends fun and games. Skip to 5:30 if you only want to see the crash!

Next year the plan is to focus on the European Hovercraft Federation Championship (EHF). Dates have been released as below - and hopefully there will be a World Hovercraft Federation (WHF) World Championship event as well.....

24/25/(26UK only) May 2014 Hacket lakes UK Combined UK National & EHF meeting
21/22 June 2014 Prudhomat France
30/31 August 2014 Saalburg Germany
20/21 September 2014 Towcester UK Combined UK National & EHF meeting

 

Cholmondleley Pagaent of Power - Round 3 of the HCGB National Hovercraft Championships.

added by Emma on June 20, 2013 at 06:06

A superb weekend racing at Cholmondeley saw the Volantis Hovercraft Racing Team finish first in Formula 2 with four wins from four starts - so a pretty good weekend!

Having finished third on the first meeting of the year, and fist in the last two rounds, with three rounds gone, theVolantis Cobra of Russ Pullen now leads the championship. Now to keep up the momentum for the rest of the season!

Next stop, Claydon House on July 20/21st. This is followed by a European race meeting at Prudhomat in southern France a week later.

Florida Hovercraft Cruise

added by Emma on April 8, 2013 at 06:16

Last weekend saw the hovercraft community descend on Floridian waters for an organised cruise event. Weather looked awful, as you can see from the photo below. Back here in Blighty, it hit a balmy 7 degrees Centigrade yesterday.

Our Florida dealers, ProHover USA were in attendance with a couple of Marlins - hopefully we'll get more photos to show you in due course!
