On 8th October the Alzate Brianza gliderport, near Como, Italy, hosted the Italian Glider Aerobatic Championship, with races for the Sport and the Freestyle category.

During the morning the Sport category races took place, either using one of the Schleicher ASK21 training glider owned by Aeroclub Volovelistico Lariano, the local soaring club...
