EAA Members Win in First Air Race 1 China Cup
China Cup
November 21, 2018 - Steve Senegal, EAA 478025, held off Tim Cone, EAA 374465, in a dramatic finish in the gold final at the Air Race 1 China Cup in Wuhan City, China. Steve, flying his Arnold AR-6 Endeavor, clocked speeds of more than 230 mph during the final.

The Air Race 1 China Cup, which took place November 16-18, was the first air race to be held in China. Air Race 1 CEO Jeff Zaltman said it would be far from the last one.

?Bringing air racing to China has been a major triumph and the public have fallen in love with Air Race 1,? Jeff said. ?I would like to thank our Chinese partners that have helped to make this happen and we look forward to working with them again in the future. Air racing in China is here to stay.?

Tim had an early lead in the gold final in his Cassutt What Airplane Honey, which must be a familiar feeling after he won the Air Race 1 World Cup event in Thailand last year. Tim ended with a speed of 230.539 mph, while Steve won out with a speed of 233.637 mph. Philip Goforth placed third in the gold final, and Steve Tumlin took home first-place honors in the silver final.

Steve and Slick (Tim) are also Vans RV 8 driver.
