Kite Buggy European Championship

John Jansen, Dutch Peter Lynn team rider, has won the Kite Buggy European Championship in St Peter Ording, Germany. In all heats of the Euro Champs John ruled in a very impressive way.

On 4 consequent days, he altogether won all 7 heats in a row, just to have bad luck in the very last heat, where he had to give up his leading position when hindered by a fellow competitor... and he just missed his eighth victory by a few yards...

Congratulations John on this sensational and sweeping victory!

And more success for Peter Lynn in the women’s Euro Champs. Dutch team rider Carien van der Meulen got a fantastic second place in the final ranking.

Congratulations to Carien on this amazing performance... particularly amazing as Carien had only one day before the Euro champs to get used to her brand new Vapors.

What a dream start this is for the brand new Peter Lynn VAPOR, the ultimate race kite in the Peter Lynn range... with a kite that is not even launched on the market, the 6 VAPOR pilots managed to take no less than 5 top-10 positions in the final ranking, in a field of some 70 pilots... as well as several top-3 positions in the individual heats.
