Ebensee:victory for Arslan Ahmed and Andrea Mayr. A sad sports day for the death of Günther Lemmerer - 10 August 2010 Print
ebensee_2010_start.jpgFor once, before talking about a race on behalf of the WMRA we turn our attention to a tragic incident that has marred the event: the day before the race, the President of the LOC, Günther Lemmerer, died in a fatal car accident.

The Turkish Arslan Ahmed and Austrian Andrea Mayr were the winners of the race valid as 3rd race of the WMRA Grand Prix 2010.
