F3A World Champs -- Roston Dugmore Snr

Tks for the posting Percy,

Just a small correction. The German kid Philip Rannetshauser (now 18) was third junior at the 2011 wc.

I'm very proud of Roston. It was very close, Roston was 0.3% behind as they began the semis but he held his nerve and flew two good flights in very windy conditions to clinch it. I was so very tense and nervous just watching. I don't know how he kept his composure, knowing even the tiniest mistake could ruin it all. The past 6 days of intense competition have been very stressful and of course the closer you get to the big prize the more the stress builds. Roston is now 24th best F3a pilot in the world and 1st junior. Couldn't be better.

Thankyou all for your  support. We are now relaxing and enjoying the moment. But spare a thought also for Rannetshauser, the big prize so near but not quite must be disapointment of the same intensity as Roston's joy. The fierce competition from him makes Roston's win even more special. Congratulations Philip Rannetshauser for a great performance.
