Head to Head double elimination Pylon races
-2 Classes, Head down and belly

Overview: Racers will exit the aircraft at 13K. 2 pylons wearing 6 foot streamers will exit first and set up in front of each other with 30-35 feet of space between them. They will each have cameras and will be flying on level. The racers must exit, then fly through the middle of the pylons, called the “gate” and then race while passing the pylon on your right side. If the flyer is doing the track correctly they should pass the pylons with the right shoulder.

There will be a minimum of 4 jumps to complete the competition. Registration is $35 and goes into the prize pool. Competitors must also cover their slots for the 5 rounds of competition, and any re-jumps, if necessary. Rain date is Sunday, July 5th.
Competitors must register by 6pm on FRIDAY, July 3rd.
Register by contacting Sdc Core or Stephanie Strange.

Prizes will be awarded at the end of the competitions. There will be both intermediate (belly) and open (head down) classes in which to compete.

Racers, start your engines!
