NAPKA - NORTH AMERICAN POWER KITING ASSOCIATION
NAPKA will be organizing the circuit racing, primarily a simple 3 mark race.
Race clinic on Tuesday, time yet to be determined
Racing on Wednesday and Thursday with a total of 5 heats with one thrown out.
2 different experience level classes, Master (you have been buggying for at least 7 or 8 years or have raced a few times already) and Open.
Final judgement on placement will take place at the pre-race meeting to be held at 10am of the first race day.
Our goal is to make this a fun yet competitive race and to increase the interest of racing here in North America. The more people that participate in this, the more fun it will be.
For insurance reasons in order to race you will need to be a NAPKA member. It is understood that many who are not members may not see any benefits of membership other than participating in this particular event. Please go to the NAPKA website for information about NAPKA and why we exist. You can also find (resources) information on racing here. There is a sign-up page for this race here.
Please sign-up if you are planning on participating. It aids greatly in helping us make preparations. As of right now only members can sign-up for the race. We are currently working on making it to where non-members can at least sign-up, but of course will have to become a member prior to racing.
Looking forward to some fun in the sun and dust. The success of this depends on all of us. It will be what we make it.

From March 27th – March 31st Kite Buggiers, Land Boarders, Land Sailors, and other Wind Enthusiasts will gather at one of the most incredible spots in the WORLD. We are hosting an industry event for everyone to come out and try out the latest gear. Whether you are a seasoned vet, beginner, or spectator there will be plenty of toys to play with.
If you would like to attend the event or demo any gear then you need to register. However if you are family, just spectating, or getting tandem rides from your friends then there will be no cost to you. Attending as a guest, will still allow you to buy Event Memorabilia and/or participate in the raffle.
Participants will be allowed to arrive as early as they would like. There is no longer a permit required to be on Ivanpah Dry Lake as an individual. NALSA will be occupying Staging Area 3 from Monday, March 20th - Saturday, March 25th. IBX will be using the same Tent and Staging area as NALSA again.
We look forward to seeing you at Ivanpah Buggy eXpo 2017!
