European Kite Buggy Championship

Excitement in windswept Hoylake this week, where the European Kite Buggy Championships are taking place on the endless sands of Liverpool Bay.

Around 75 buggies and their pilots from 10 countries took advantage of the tail of hurricane Irene to whizz up and down the beach at speeds of up to 70mph in five days of competition.

I squelched my way out during a break in the rain and found the whole spectacle a bit perplexing, but nevertheless enthralling and impressive.

See what you think:

  1. The kite buggy photos look fantastic, love the windy sands that make the buggies appear to be racing on clouds. Great collection of images in your galleries on photoshelter a real breadth of work.
