We took a weather gamble and lucked out for our first T28 racing session of 2023. The forecast was for rain by early afternoon which gave us the motivation to expedite getting through the racing in record time. We got all the racing done and awards presented in a little under an hour. A special thanks to Jim for being the race master and keeping things running fast and smooth.
Now to the actual results. We had 8 pilots dueling for top honors —after the preliminary rounds the order was set for the finals. The results were as follows:
In general the quality of flying is getting better with fewer errors and cut pylons and more wing tip to wing tip flying resulting in more planes separated by just a few feet when crossing the finish line.
Our next T28 race is scheduled for Feb 11 at 10AM. There was a small fleet of T28s awarded at the club banquet —for those who won a plane and want to join the fun please follow this link to read up on the rules and tips to setup the planes to race: https://www.sefsd.org/club-contests/t28-racing/t28-rules-information/ New pilots needing a race number please email me and we will get you setup.
