More Royal Aero Club Air Race Wins for the Robin DR401 155 CDI

Our congratulations (again) to Gordon Bellerby (pilot, left) and Dave Lee (navigator, right), this time for winning both the Beverley Snook Memorial Trophy and the City Livery Trophy in very challenging weather conditions at the Royal Aero Club* meeting in Leicester on 8th / 9th May.

Fying Gordon’s Robin DR401 155 CDI in rain and with thunderstorms approaching, the pair beat the competition (including an Extra 300) to win these prestigous trophies across two consecutive days.

The huge silver cup was presented to the victorious pair by John Pond, Chairman of the City Livery Aero Section.
