Where and When?

 

Where?

The Skyrace GP is based at Leeton Airfield in regional NSW. Leeton is the perfect site for our event for a number of reasons:

  • It’s in the heart of some of the best gliding country in Australia
  • The town is large enough to have a multitude of social, dining & accommodation options
  • The airfield itself isn’t busy during the period our event is held
When?

The contest starts on the 3rd of January 2022, and concludes on the 10th of January 2022, The 3rd of January is a designated practice day.

how is the Skyrace GP different?

Conventional gliding competitions can require a huge financial commitment. The Skyrace GP 1.0 is centred around the club class handicap of 1.0, which means that pilots can buy a competitive sailplane for less than $10,000. In the first running of the contest in the 2017 / 2018 season, the contest was won by Nathan Johnson in a borrowed 1976 Glasflugel Hornet
