|TOTAL RACE DISTANCE
Flying a Cirrus SR 22
The race consists of two-person teams ﬂying over the course of four days. All teams are required to check in at each of nine stops along the route, and must be at one of these stops by nightfall. Because the teams ﬂy a variety of different aircraft, the race is based on a handicap for each team, not necessarily who crosses the ﬁnish line ﬁrst.
Completing the 4 day race, Dianna & Victoria were the 20th team to make it to the finish at Batavia, Ohio on Friday. They would not find out their final standing until Sunday night though.
Batavia, Ohio – The Racing Aces were announced as the first place winners of the 36th Annual Air Race Classic at Sunday, June 24th’s ARC Banquet.
Congratulations Dianna & Victoria on this incredible accomplishment! Well done!!
This is the 2nd year Dianna & Victoria teamed up as “The Racing Aces”, last year flying one of only two taildraggers entered in the race.
