Daniel Jones wins an amazing 1st place, 3rd Benedikt Bös with Moster 185 in the Open category.

  Vittorazi’ paramotor engines continue to fly high, this time they nail the podium right across the English Channel, during the British Championship which was held at Wingland Airfield in the city of Lincolnshire from 6 to 10 July. A moment of great pride which adds a further confirmation of the extraordinary performance and versatility of the Atom 80 MY22 and the talent of the pilots who choose to fly with our engines.   Like the British Daniel Jones, 28, who started flying in a paramotor 3 years ago and in a very short time became British Open and National Champion. All this with Vittorazi’s Atom 80.   How did you feel when you found out you were the new British Champion?
I couldn’t believe I’d done it. The last task (bowling landing) was very tense. There was only 1 point between 2nd place. I still needed to see the official score sheet to believe I was #1.
  Why did you choose the Atom 80 for the competition?
For my weight (64kg) the Atom 80 is perfect. It’s very economical, light weight and is reliable.
  What’s the characteristic of the Atom 80 that you enjoy the most in a competition?
I really like how easy the Atom 80 is to pull start. It requires no effort so it’s great for Pure Economy tasks where you might turn your engine off and need to restart in the air.
  How much and to which extent did the engine help you during the competition?
Because the Atom 80 is so economical, combined with my Dudek Nucleon WRC 27m and frame Bulldog I managed to get a fuel burn of 2.24lph during the Economy FAI Triangle task. We were allowed 6kg (8L) of fuel with 4 hours to plan and fly the biggest equilateral triangle we could. I flew 105km and landed with 2L, maybe I should have pushed further but it’s better to play it safe and earn point during a competition. I was amazed at the fuel burn.  
Congrats Daniel.   And congratulations also to Benedikt Bös, German pilot and owner of ParaMotor Germany, who reached a remarkable milestone with his 3rd place in the Open ranking together with his Moster 185 despite not being able to complete all the tasks due to post-covid health complications. A great athlete, an example of determination and love for flying:
It was a competition with a nice atmosphere and a lot competitiveness. I recommend everyone to go there next year to try out the new British format which is a mix of Endurance and Classic competitions with a lot of flight time.
  See you at the next competition guys! What an honor for us all."
