F3F in the Vosges (route des crêtes)

Excellent competition last week-end in the east of France (Alsace). We managed 16 rounds with 21 pilots (7 rounds on Saturday, and 9 on Sunday). Saturday, conditions were light with some crossed wind, best time at 44s. The rain came around 4pm. On sunday, we had a beautiful day, with stronger wind. Top pilots were always in sub-40. I personnaly achieved a nice 32s with my Needle 115V despite a very slow last lap after the plane stopped in the last turn . But the best time of the competition went to Frederic Hours with a superb 30.40s with his Stinger. The top 4 was very closed between Aubry Gabanon, Frédéric Hours, Mark Redsell (who came from UK) and myself. Frédéric finally won the competition, followed by Aubry (992 points), I finished third (987 points) and Mark in 4th position (986 points). A veny nice and intense competition, in a beautiful area. A big thanks to the organisers Renaud and stéphane !

And below is the usual short video from Aubry Gabanon, giving a different perspective of the slope.
