MPSCA Chairman Paul Clarke said: “Following on from the ISAF recognition of the class in 2006 we have been working towards our first official World Championships with great anticipation. We are delighted at the number of entries and this event will be a real landmark in the progression of the class.”

Event sponsor Velocitek will attend the event and will run daily debriefs showing the tracks of competitors as they round the course. As well as the usual points racing that will of course decide the World Championship there will also be a Vmax competition run by event sponsor Velocitek. Velocitek are offering an S10 unit as first prize.
