01.10.2013 - Don Vito wins the Reno Gold Race - Congratulations!
Don Vito Wypraechtiger has become the first non-american to win the prestigious Gold Race with his Swiss air racing team at the legendary Reno Air Race.
Don Vito Wypraechtiger secured his place in aviation history after an astonishing display of airborne skill secured him the top spot at this year's Reno Air Races, which took place from 11th - 15th September in Nevada, USA.
A 200'000 strong crowd watched Don Vito battle it out for the top spot with his main competitor, Steven Senegal. A combination of an incredibly good start, quick thinking tactics and an average speed of 240 mph enabled him to lift the trophy after only three attempts of the notoriously diffcult course.
Winning at the Reno Air Races has been a lifelong ambition of Don Vito Wypraechtiger's. A talented and admired pilot who has walked away with an award on each of his previous attempts, he is delighted to finally lift the trophy that has meant so much to him.
This year we have launched the Oris Air Racing Edition III in homage to our partnership with Don Vito Wypraechtiger.
