2016 11_11_live

Until the last race it was very close at the top and any of the top five pilots still had a chance to win the contest.

Until the end, there was no doubt that all the competitors wanted to be on the podium and were working out the best tactics for the last day’s race.

At the end, the difference of only two points meant that the German pilot Holger Karow is now the FAI Sailplane Grand Prix World Champion. South African and local hero Oscar Goudriaan is second and Christophe Abadie from France soared to third position.
