Don Vito and the Oris Swiss Air Racing Team
Runner-Up at Reno

Don Vito, defending champion and the Oris sponsored Swiss Air Racing Team wowed the crowds in Nevada finishing second at the 51st Reno Air Races.

A 200,000 strong crowd turned up to watch him defend his title with former winner and his main competitor, Steve Senegal. After encountering an unfortunate cooling system malfunction in heat 3, Don Vito took a decisive decision to pull out of the race, in order to safeguard the engine. As a result, this qualified him for the 4th starting grid in the Gold final. At the end of an exciting air race weekend, Don Vito finished in second place in the Formula 1 Gold Race. Swiss watch manufacturer Oris is proud of Don Vito Wypraechtiger’s strong finish and the team’s tenacity despite the setback during the heats and congratulate the team on their very commendable second place.

In 2013 a major refit and fine tuning turn the Scarlet Screamer into a prize winning Formula One aeroplane. Don Vito won the Reno Air Races, becoming the first non-American Gold Race champion in the event's 50-year history. Oris is celebrating his unprecedented achievements with the Oris Air Racing Edition IV, a pilot's watch designed with the needs of the daredevil pilot in mind. Limited to 1,000 pieces, Ø 45 mm Ref: 735 7698 4783.
