Fast track pilots Alan Carter (SF-27), Steve Fletcher (Open Cirrus - 36 mins), Adrian Irwin (Zugvögel), Leith Whittington (Dart 17R) and Paula Howarth (K-8 - 43 mins..!) occupied the second line of the grid, where pride of place was surely taken by Mike Bennett, who not only converted to the K-8 for the first time but managed 13 mins soaring on his second flight (both landings requiring some quick thinking, 'over the top' recoveries...). Well done, Mike!
