Nicolas Ivanoff finishes 4th at Red Bull Air Race Chiba, Japan
Congratulations to our brand ambassador Nicolas Ivanoff, who finished fourth the past weekend at the Red Bull Air Race in Chiba, Japan, where he competed against 13 pilots.
Despite changing weather conditions and technical issues, Ivanoff gave the perfect illustration of his skill in a pressure-packed finale.
The French pilot would have finished 2nd if he hadn’t gotten the Did Not Finish (DNF) penalty for exceeding the 10g limit at the end of the final run. “I’m really disappointed not to have made it to the podium despite a great time at the Final 4. Winning the Qualifying session on Saturday gave me great confidence but unfortunately we had a technical issue before the start of the Round of 14 - luckily we managed to fix it by the Round of 8 which allowed me to continue the race”.
