Contest is finished, last racing day of Xmas Cup 2012 is over. And here are the winners:
1st place for THIBEAU TEUWEN (TIB/Ventus2cx/Belgium) - 2568 points
2nd place for SANDOR LAURINYECZ (LS/Ventus2cx/Hungary) - 2565 points
3rd place for HELMUT KUENNE (F9/ASG29/Germany) - 2528 points
New Year Fivehundreds (500+ km task, will be not counted in overall score in this contest) will have server start at January 1st, 2011 at 19:00 CET (18:00 UTC), briefing will be available on this website too. team wish you Happy New Year 2013!
SAD NEWS  Horst Jahnke (DHJ) in racing Day 2 according to the contest rulez - chapter 1. Prerequisites was penalized by disqualification (strange behavior in multiplayer - condor reporting starting task, turning TP, entering cloud etc. with FPL and real-time scoring off = modified Condor software see server log).

Welcome to next small virtual soaring competition - 5th edition of Xmas Cup - this time we move for sunny December weather to Australia. Length of tasks is close to 300 km (start and finish in Scone airport), we will race in 18-METER CLASS with PDA, serverstart always at 20:00 CET (19:00 UTC).

Overall results is simple count of all 4 tasks. We are planning also New Year Fivehundreds - this 500 km task will be not counted in contest, but results will be here online too.

Attention: choose carefully glider type in registration - with registered glider type you have to fly all tasks! Server passwords will be published in briefing page. After each race you must send IGC file to be scored! More informations about competition in Rules section.

Big thanks goes to for hosting Condor servers for our contests and preparing amazing sceneries for us. Thank you again, Miloš!

This competition is continued line of successful competitions like Hahnweide Pokal, Retro Cup, Fatra Gliding Cup, Medlánky Condorworld Cup, Liptov Shepherd GP, Praděd GP Gliding, Raven Competition, Kiwi Race, OCC and many others.

Condor › The Competition Soaring Simulator

Condor: The Competition Soaring Simulator is designed to recreate the ultimate experience of competition soaring on your PC. A lot of attention was put in to create an environment which would create an immersion of real competition flying. This means that the aerodynamics and weather physics were in focus of the development. The result is amazingly real feel of flight in all flight regimes and weather conditions which challenges a real soaring pilot on a competition day.

Amazing feel of flight due to the advanced flight dynamics model: Advanced 6DOF flight model for complete freedom of flying / Accurate sailplane performance and handling – also at and beyond critical angles of attack / Sailplane damage simulation – flutter, high G stress, collisions / High time fidelity physics engine (up to 500 cycles per second) / Accurate ground forces for realistic takeoffs, landings and crashes / Detailed, sub-object collision detection for mid air and ground object collisions / Accurate conditions for a realistic towing and winch start.

More informations about this simulator you can get at Some videos from this soaring simulator also here.
