Published on:

Last week Mathieu Rouanet dominated the French National PPG Championships with his Viper 2, taking overall and French National Title. Ex-World Champion, current Vice World Champion and European Champion, and now 2x French Champ, Mathieu's competition record is almost unparalleled in the PPG world and his overall skill as a pilot is truly unmatched in the PPG scene. Mathieu said that the Viper 2 (available to the public soon... stay tuned) was highly effective in the speed, slalom, and economy tasks, with excellent stability. 7 Ozone Vipers and 4 Roadsters flew in the championships. Laurent Salinas placed 4th overall flying his Viper, and 16 year old Ozone Pilot Alexander Mateos finished 5th, and Ronan Choullou in 6th on his Viper. Congratulations, guys! And congrats also to Coralie Matéos, who took 3rd overall flying her Ozone Rush in her first competition ever! Splendid! After the closing ceremony the competitors were allowed a special treat - flying on the ex-NATO airbase, which has a 3.2km runway! Mathieu said, "I think we never launched from, flew over, or 'barefooted' on such a huge airbase!!! Also, the "Patrouile de France" (French Airforce Fighter Jet Display) also took of from there, 4 fighter jets at the same time!"
