In this innovative format, 15 of the World’s Top pilots from 11 different countries, will compete face to face to see who is the most technical and daring pilot of the competition. The Acro GAME 2018 will take place in the town of Organyà, which has now become the global epicenter of this sport thanks to its optimum weather conditions and well known magic mountain.

The pilot can reach high speeds of more than 100km/h and a centrifugal force of 6G in certain maneuvers. The format of Acro GAME is based on a first round qualifying, where the 15 pilots will face each other. Only the 8 best will make it through to the final, on the next day.
