The buggies are for sale after the trip is over.
They only weight 40Kg, and with a size like that, they should reach incredible speeds and remain stable. Just don't flip them over you :wink:
How much will they cost???

You'd be amaxzed at how little wind a buggy actually needs... on the right surface you do not need much wind at all. Hard sand would suffice..... I'm all for this greener world bizzo.. Where I live there is so much in the way of elements enargy (sun wind rain etc) that you just can't ignore it...

Kitin 4eva!!!

The guys are kiting back from the pole after being flown out there and I can't help thinking how painful it will be for the traditional expeditions trekking their way in the opposite direction as they zoom past, heading home in comfort having a blast and looking proper sci-fi.

I know Brian and he told me the one-way 600 mile flight to drop them off at the pole with their kit was costing around £100 000 (GBP)!... thank feck for sponsors!.. Have a break!

Good shout for Advance too.. the guys tested a lot of different kites and the fact that they have entrusted their power to Advance in such extreme conditions says a lot for quality.
