Join us at the Icarus X Series UK 2019 edition for the race launch, pilot arrivals and prizegiving. The weekend race doubles up as a casual fly-in for all paramotor pilots and it's a cracking opportunity for anyone looking to get into paramotoring to find out more about the sport and meet a bunch of people involved from students just starting out to some of the most experienced pilots in the UK.
This ticket gets you a basic camping pitch on site for Friday and Saturday night. Each ticket is for one vehicle and up to two tents and includes both nights.

What is the Icarus X Series?
The Icarus X Series races are condensed 2 day Icarus Trophy shaped adventure slaps in the ****. It's still the toughest thing to do with a Paramotor, but they're not quite so gigantic and they almost fit into a weekend. A sort of Quickarus if you will.

It's open to all-comers (assuming you can fly) whether you're on the main Icarus race or you just want to give real XC racing a shot. These races are also the best form of training for the Icarus Trophy itself.
X Series has the same rules and race structure as the main Icarus so it's a long distance endurance adventure. Its still split into race and adventure class.
