World Hovercraft Championship 2008

TEAM Poland at the World Hovercraft Championship 2008 in Flottsbro, Sweden.

Thanks to our sponsors, our team got to fly a hovercraft made of ultra light and highly durable carbon laminates.

Our team competed with teams from places like England, France, USA, Australia, Canada, Sweden, Belgium and Italy in rallies that lasted several days.

25 contesting teams came from 16 countries and used more than 150 craft. We made it through a whole range of time trials and starts to qualify for the finals, eventually ranking 12th in the F50 category.

Enriched by the experience, we set to work on improving the parameters of our hovercraft and honing the skills of our pilots as soon as we got back home.

We stand a good chance of winning the next rallies, having attracted more sponsors!

The European Hovercraft Championship is coming around again soon - maybe we will succeed in having this great event held in Poland!
