The final day of the contest saw just enough wind to complete the single elimination and crown the 2008 PWA Austria Champion. It was a long week for all, with tricky conditions giving the race director a hard time. However little by little heats were completed and by the the last morning they were down to the top 8.
Making into the semis were Tonky vs Gollito and Brawzinho vs Anxton. The heat was abandoned 2 times throughout the day, but finally at 15.30 the wind filled in enough to decide the finalist. Gollito and Brawzinho advanced to the final whilst Tonky and Anxton went to the losers final.
Both heats were held immediately and Gollito took the win, leaving Brawzinho in 2nd place. Tonky finished ahead of Anxton to take the final place on the podium.
This sets up nicely for the rest of the year with the 2006 and 2007 world champions taking 1st and 2nd. Who will take the next scalp at Lanzarote in June? It looks like it could be another tight year.
