One of the "Classics" of Italian National Championship has been held in 
Siena on July 5-6, 1997 for Cat. Sportsmen and Unlimited. The latter contest 
was also valid as final selection for Italian Aerobatic Team 1997 in 
preparation of !st WAG.
After weeks of bad weather, contest has been started in clear sky, but 
strong crosswind forced organizers to stop flying early Saturday afternoon. 
Many flying hours were lost as consequences, leading to cancellation of 
programs Unknown #2 for Sportsmen and Unknown for Unlimited. Final %PP were 
thus multiplied by 0.9, as per National Rules.
Many new entrants in Sportsmen as new faces and planes in Unlimited: Ruggero 
Rossini and Fabio Viviani, retiring and selling their CAP-231EX some months 
ago, changed their mind and bought a factory-new SU-31 with ejectable seat, 
competing in the meantime with standard SU-31 rent by European distributor 
Richard Goode.
Debuting Paolo Ruscio, co-owner of an Extra 300L until some months ago, 
acquired just four days before contest a CAP-231EX, previously owned by 
French National Christian Lesage: it's the same plane Xavier De lapparent 
won WAG'94 with. Ruscio's performance has been obviously insufficient, 
convincing him to retire before contest's end.
On July 12-13 Siena will host Cat. Intermediate and Advanced.
