Siena Contest has been completed on July 12-13 with Intermediate and 
Advanced. Weather has been beautiful but hot, so that some aircraft suffered 
engine troubles on startup due to vapour-lock.
Anyway no time has been wasted, thus all planned flights (1 Known + 2 
Unknowns for Intermediate, Known, Free and 2 Unknowns for Advanced) have 
been performed originating a though competition, most pilots showing a 
similar but high quality level in their performances.
Intermediate has been conquered by veteran Marco Brusa, coming back in 
Intermediate after several years in Advanced. Brusa got his strike in last 
Unknown, after his rival Francesco Fornabaio, leading up to then, scored two 
zeroes for flying behind judges. Two young pilots, Vittorio Primultini and 
Luca Fini, got 2nd and 3rd flying venerable but still valid CAP-20 and 
In Advanced, Flavio Sussan is back to the victory, with a regular pace 
helped by some errors done by his rival Luca Scheda, flying the same plane. 
Paolo Ottomaniello lost his first place as well after some glitches, while 
Ugo Zanuso on SU-29 is steadily improving.
Next contest for both categories will be the Final at Cuneo, Sep. 6-7.
