2nd French F3F Team qualification contest

This week end, 14 pilots "fighted" during 2 days to enter in one of the 3 french teams for the viking race. This qualification was on the VKR slopes. Saturday we has very strong wing in Laurac (slope A) with an average around 22 to 23 m/s and some dust to 30m/s! Best time of the day is Philippe Lanes with a 32s, flying a Freestyler. We completed 8 rounds.

On Sunday, the weather calmed down a lot and we went to St Ferriol to do again 8 rounds in light to medium conditions. Best time of the day was 37s.

Alexis has been impressive during the week-end, confirming that the Alliaj HM is a great F3F plane. Freestylers were still very competitive, recording the best times on Saturday and Sunday. The Cyril and the Ceres are also very competitive planes. On my side, I was already qualified in 1st position so had no pressure at all. Therefore I participated to "ramp up" with my new planes for my first competition in 2010: the Alliaj HM and the Dingo. I'm very statisfied with both even if I damaged the tail of my Alliaj after an heavy landing with 1.5 kg of ballast in it. This crazy plane can carry so much ballast that the landing becomes a touchy excercice.

The ranking of this contest (and planes used) is the following:
