World Hovercraft Championship

The World Hovercraft Championship came to Stockholm, so we had to go and see. In many ways it reminded me of the old karting days, with a number of heats of different class craft culminating in a final at the end of the day.

It was an exciting day out, with some fantastic races, the smell of two stroke engines and machine oil, and the sound of a lot of air being blown around. The most exciting race had around 15 entrants and ended up with two craft nearly sinking, leading it to be called off early and rerun later.
