I'm really happy that we made it to the podium here, it's our first win after about three times we are third so we are really happy that we have finally made it." 13. PODIUM STORY: Team Rotorama won the drone "Race in Caves" in Romania on Saturday (October 14) after a missed gate cost Immersion Racing the victory. Needing to take places 1-3 in the final to win, Immersion Racing seemed to have done what they needed after two pilots of Rotorama crashed and they claimed the first three places. However in the review after the race it was discovered that an Immersion Racing pilot had missed an important gate which led to a subsequent disqualification, leaving Team Rotorama 3-2 victors.
