It was fantastic!

Botswana President Ian Khama had a great time:

As did his brother and Minister of Tourism, Tshekedi Khama, who was responsible for the immense amount of work that provided the spectacular venue. TK still had the energy to party late into the night last night after I went to bed:

I had a ripping time, as did everyone else:

While others enjoyed a game of follow-my-leader!

Not all the results but have a look at the video as well as the article.

Was an incredible event that cannot be missed even if you do not race.

Well done to all involved.

Well where does one start, i have now attended all 3 races and all i can say is that it just keeps getting better and better.

I would like to commend every single person involved in making this event as special as it is, from the organisers right through
to the race participants. It really is a spectacular event.

This is just a short clip that the video crews put together on Saturday night to give everyone an idea of what happened.

Whatever happens - DON'T EDIT THE CONTENT! The colourful language throughout and situations of confusion / being unsure etc (e.g. @ 03:40) made for a highly amusing video. I think its great!

A BE58 at full ball just has to be one of the better aviation sounds . . . .
