Back on August 28, The Westernport Model Aircraft Club hosted the 2nd Sport and Q500 pylon race for the year. Although I wasn’t able to be there for much of the day, I did see the last couple of hours of racing. It was great to see so many new faces to pylon racing and not just in the sport class but also involved in the Quickie class. It would be fantastic if we could see these new competitors start to compete at our regular events as we travel all over Victoria.
