Thank you for all the pilots that took these great pictures.
“Well that's the 2019 IMAC open international cup done and dusted. It's been a great week. Many new friendships have been made. We have learnt a whole lot and have so much to take away from this event.
There is one man to whom we owe the most. A most humble guy with a huge heart who lent us a plane to fly in Italy. He has gone above and beyond in every way to ensure our trip was a success. To Roberto Russo, thank you! I hope we can one day return the favor.
Manrico Mincuzzi and his team for organizing the whole event which ran flawlessly. Well done and thank you. I certainly plan on seeing you guys at the Europeans in 2020. Pietro Di Biaggio and Mauro, thanks for the use of your fantastic airfield.
Sacha Cecconi, Gernot Bruckmann, Martin Brandmüller, Marek Plichta. Thanks for the chats and info on your setups. Well done on your flights. Was great to see you guys fly and we have some homework to do before next year.
To all the other competitors not only in unlimited, but in all the classes that we met. Thanks for a brilliant week and competition. We hope to see you all again soon.
I most certainly did not have the best flights and have many zeroes. But the info I am taking away and the experience has been worth it. I will be back! I finally finished in 17th place. With a total of over 80 competitors this is the biggest IMAC event to date in Europe. So glad I was here to be a part of it.
The brand new GP123CC that we fitted to the plane for the event, performed as expected. With only 5 flights to test run and tune it before the event started we could not ask for more. Running on AS power canisters and swinging a 28x10 prop. Power distribution supplied by an older powerbox champion, but still working like the day it was installed.
Lastly a huge thanks to GP Engines and Powerbox for their support!
