Team Mazda UK pilot Eric Vazeille wins Bronze medal in World Aerobatic Championship

Sun, 30 Aug 2009



















  • French pilot Renaud Ecalle crowned World Champion in both the classic World Championship and the freestyle World Championship




  • Team Mazda UK pilot Eric Vazeille takes bronze in the four minute freestyle

  • Mazda sponsored Russian team takes second place in the team placings


Team Mazda UK pilot Eric Vazeille won the bronze medal in the World
Freestyle Aerobatic Championship yesterday with a stunning display of
precision and skill in his French built Cap 232 airplane.  The ex-World
Champion demonstrated why he is one of the best aerobatic pilots in the
World with a flight that seemed to defy the laws of gravity with
gyroscopic figures and tumbles that wowed the Silverstone crowd.


The Gold medal in the World Freestyle Aerobatic Championship went to
French pilot Renaud Ecalle with Jurgis Kairys from Lithuania taking
silver.


The classic World Aerobatic Championship was also won by French
pilot Renaud Ecalle after flying the Q programme, (known and practised
prior to the event), and the free, (a sequence of his own design), with
Team Mazda UK pilots Gerald Cooper in seventh and Mark Jefferies in 10th.  The championship started on the 20th
August with 60 of the world's best pilots from 18 countries competing
for the title of World Champion, the championship finished yesterday,
Saturday 29th August.


In the team ranking the French team took the gold medal, with the
Mazda backed Russian team securing the silver medal and team USA in the
bronze medal position, Team Mazda UK just missed out on a medal with
fourth place.
