Did you know that Arizona Airspeed celebrates the 20-year anniversary in May?
posted: Feb 18th, 2014 The 2014 season is a very challenging one for Arizona Airspeed. The reigning 4way world champions, with two new members after the Mondial Dubai 2012, have to defend the gold medals against the charging NMP-PCH Hayabusa who came back with the same lineup.
Hayabusa ended up only one single point behind Airspeed in Dubai and had a significantly better starting point into the new 2-year cycle.

Did you know that Aerodyne French Girls and Golden Knights may change the top standard in 4way Women this year?
posted: Feb 9th, 2014 The French national lineups in the female 4way category often have to look at the Open Class leaderboards to set their standards and compare their scores realistically with the 4way top performances in the world. This was standarad procedure for Aerokart Deep Blue who did not have much competition in their own category at all in 2011 and 2012.
