SERIES: F2C Training day at Whiteman Park, Perth, Western Australia, 6 November 2004. Top pilot Robert Fitzgerald flew in from South Australia  to conduct coaching sessions. His "phantom" model was much appreciated when they were flying 3-up!!  The message to pilots seemed to be, stay close, shoulder to shoulder, small steps on a small radius circle, and move in close to your opponents back when overtaking.

Miss Whiteman Park F2C Princess Rosemary Ayers congratulates  Bertina/Thompson, 3rd place, F2C WA State Champs November 7, 2004  Leknys/Hoogenkamp, second place  and a good thing beaten Group shot, tired but happy racers after a hot, windy, tiring days racing. Not to mention attacks by Kangaroo ticks.  
Morrow/Stivey battled thru for a well deserved First Place. Despite the best efforts of Rob Fitzgerald, the models got ahead of our top pilots, resulting in considerable drama. Stop Racing was called and they all piled into each other  after landing!!  Better the models than the pilots; just shows how tough F2C racing really is.
