This looks cool ! What class will we be flying ?

Also I wonder, why not simply putting the competition on condor.club ? It would give the opportunity to much more people to play it, as not everyone visits this forum nor condor café's regularily.

Cheers for the competition anyway, I'm looking forward to be there.

Plane Class is Open Class .
We will not be using the Condor Club Grand Prix Formula as the maximum of 10 points per event is limited to 20 pilots and we expect more pilots for our competition.

Open class is a class defined by FAI IGC. FAI IGC only allows handicap/index in Club Class and in 20-meter Multi Seat. Of which only Club Class may be handicapped on World Championships.

For handicapping outside FAI IGC Condor let's you handicap with DAeC in All Class (and other non FAI IGC Condor classes like the Condor School Class)

So apparently the organizers want to use Open Class as it should. Without handicapping.

On Condor.club you can change handicapping.

Basically the EB29 is fairly advantaged, the JS1-21 may be able to compete in some rare occasions but basically yes, at this time, open class is more or less a monotype competition for EB-29 pilots (even on slower weathers, as with some practice the EB-29 becomes a fairly good climber).

Not going to support this. I prefer to have an open competition in a language everybody understands. I am not a big fan of wasting my time in researching on any forums besides condor club . If you gies want to be in a private small circle and play with passwords thats fine. But over all your culture of esports suck. Just needs to be said.

Hi Alex,

Just to make it clear for everyone here, this contest is not organised nor supported by the FAI IGC commission whatsover, nor by the FAI Sailplane Grand Prix Team.

The use of "Grand-Prix" in the contest formula is very confusing with what has been done recently with FAI.
Please try not to use it anymore, unless you stricly follow SGP Rules and formula.

Kind regards,
Antoine Havet

Hi ,

Grand Prix is not reserved for FAI !! Where have you seen this ?
In addition, the term FAI has never been used by our team .
Look at the competition possibilities offered by the Condor Club and you will find the Grand Prix formula !

I consider your remark inadmissible .

Grand prix racing means regatta start. Seeing as you use a time window it is a bit confusing...
