Istanbul Showdown 2013 is a Huge success!

For the third year in a row the ProBASE World Cup Tour stopped in the city of Istanbul, Turkey from

May 20th to 25th 2013 to initiate the official World Tour.

 

ProBASE World Cup is the worlds premier organizer of Wingsuit Racing and BASE Jumping competitions, the ProBASE World Cup Tour has been running since 2009 and includes a total of 5 Tour stops this year.

More then 60 athletes from over 20 nations participated in the event, which was held as an accuracy competition.

 

In the competition the athletes jumped off the 236m high Sapphire Tower in the Levant district of Istanbul, Europe's tallest residential building.

The athletes were judged on 3 main criteria, which were free fall delay, canopy opening direction and accuracy landing on a 10 meter circular target.

Englishman Alastair McCartney took the win and a 10.000 euro prize cheque ahead of Miles Daisher from the USA, Jay Moletzky from Canada and Sebastian Einicke from Germany, all tied for 2nd place.

Maria Steinmayr from Austria headed the list in the unofficial womens category by finishing 12th overall.
