2006 Viking Race, Scotland

The 2006 VR was held at East Lomond in Fife, Scotland. Although the weather was in the main sunny and warm, the event was marred by poor flying conditions and a large entry of 91, which led to only five scoring rounds being flown.

On the positive side, the results at the top seem pretty credible to me. The Herrig brothers emphasised their superiority in F3F with an excellent one-two, flying their latest Radical design. Kevin Newton was third with his Skorpion. As regards the team prize, England 1 (Kevin, John Bennett and Mark Southall) took top spot.

As regards rules, there seems to be a growing acceptance at least amongst the UK pilots that group scoring, or something similar, could be used routinely to counteract the effects of gradually shifting conditions. No doubt we'll be hearing opininions expressed about this and other points on the F3F list.

Thanks to Fife Soarers for hosting, and to all helpers for their time and effort.
