Tim Alongi is the winner of the 2018 Acro GAME after 2-times champion Theo de Blic in a 2:4 battle! Horacio Llorens took 3rd place against Victor Bicho Carrera! The other finalists were: Rafael Goberna, Jack Pimblett, Egor Posokhin and Francois Ragolski.
It was already the third edition of the Acro GAME held in Organya. An invitational event that is setting future standards with its revolutionary competition concept inspired by the battle system of Somchaux Acro Show but taken to the next level regarding all aspects. It is more diverse, tactical and challenging for the participants as well as easier for spectators to follow and understand the out-coming results. The level of the pilots keep following the tendency of the past years: the progression does not seem to slow down! Pilots realized they need to be creative and know their opponents weaknesses. Tim got this just right by clearly eliminating Horacio by 1:4 and then did so similar against Theo in the final battle.
Here you will find the list of all the battles and their maneuvers.
