Marko Hrgetic gets time penalty

48 hours for busting airspace

The Race Committee has given Marko Hrgetic (HRV) a 48-hour time penalty for infringing airspace near Chamonix. 

Hrgetic entered the restricted LF-R30A airspace near Turnpoint 9 Mont Blanc. This area is out of bounds to paraglider pilots as it is used as a corridor for mountain rescue helicopter flights. 

As the race ends at 12:00 today, Hrgetic’s final distance will be determined by winding his track back by 41 hours from 05:00 this morning.

Hrgetic is currently in 20th position with 375km to go to goal in Monaco.
