Two French Pilots M. Seis and C. Ruch and Polish pilot S. Kawa on the Podium of the 6th FAI World Sailplane Grand Prix Championship
What an exciting race with all the elements for a great, thrilling finale. Unfortunately, the pilots came under the influence of deteriorating weather quickly. An incoming front spoiled all the opportunities for a flight back home to Varese-airfield. Just 20 kilometers short of the finish line, the three leading teams had to decide for a safe outlanding.
As no one will be able to finish the task, the results of the 6th FAI World Sailplane Grand Prix Championship stay as after yesterday's flight. The gold medal will go to Maximilian SEIS (France), on second place with the silver-medal Christoph RUCH (France) and with Sebastian KAWA (Poland) taking the bronze medal.
