Dolderer wins in Indy and takes World Championship

Matthias Dolderer takes his third win of the season and is crowned World Champion

Dolderer wins!

Matthias Dolderer flew the perfect run in the Final 4 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to take the race win and also the World Championship title.

The German pilot has been consistent all season and when the pressure came on in the Final 4 here in the IMS he didn't crack under the pressure.

Dolderer had to fly fast in the Final 4 as he was up against Nigel Lamb, Matt Hall and Pete McLeod. McLeod was first out in the final round and posted an impressive time of 1:05.398 for the others to beat.

Lamb was second in the track and was more than a second quicker than McLeod putting the pressure on Hall and Dolderer.

When it came to Hall's run he put himself out of the race almost instantly when he hit a pylon at Gate 2, collecting three seconds worth of penalties.

For Matthias Dolderer to win the World Championship all he had to do was fly cleanly, but in his usual style Dolderer went all-out for the win and took it with a time of 1:03.335. From his cockpit Dolderer said: "It's super emotional. And I want to thank my family, my friends and the best team in the world!"
