The X-BIONIC® athlete could repeat his success from the last year and beat his competitors during the third round of the 2015 Red Bull Air Race World Championship in Rovinj. He showed a great performance during the thrilling races in the coastal town of Croatia and won the Final 4 challenge. Due to this victory Hannes is now at the third rank of the Red Bull Air Race world championship standings. Hannes said after his first success this year:
It was an important victory for me after the difficult season start in Abu Dhabi and the desaster in Chiba. If you want to win, you have to believe in yourself [..] I have a good feeling with my team and we achieved our goals now, this is a good feeling that I don’t want to miss anymore.
Hannes and his team are now looking forward to the next Red Bull Air Race in Budapest/Hungary during the first weekend in July. Read more about the upcoming event at www.redbullairrace.com/en_INT/event/budapest-2015.
