Hong Kong Pilot's ranking for International F3F competition
Race is an annual F3F Open competition in the Asia-Pacific region. It
is hosted by Taiwan, Korea and Hong Kong, rotated every year since
2008. Pilots from Hong Kong, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore, Australia and
Japan gather together every year for this most awaited F3F competiton
of the region.
The first Typhoon Race was hosted by Taiwan in 2008. Before the Typhoon
Race there were F3F Open competitions held independently in different
countries. Then in Hong Kong F3F Open 2007, pilots from Hong Kong,
Taiwan, Korea and Australia sat together and decided that we need a
joint F3F of our own. So we have the Typhoon Race now.
HKRCSS is the Hong Kong organizer of the Typhoon Race. Pilots' results
in Hong Kong F3F league are used to decide if they can represent Hong
Kong in the competition. If you want to join this wonderful event, and
I am sure you will like it, be prepared and get good league result, now!
Hong Kong pilot's ranking for Typhoon Race and International F3F competition:
of the Hong Kong F3F League are used to qualify pilots who can
represent Hong Kong for International F3F contests. For each
International F3F contest, the 6 successfully held league races prior
to the contest registration deadline will be used for the
qualification. For each pilot, the best 5 races out of the 6 will be
used as the personal result.
