Alpina Watches Brand Ambassador Michael Goulian – Podium Finish Keeps Team Goulian at the Top of Championship Standings

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

Goulian advanced to the Final 4 round and placed third at the Cannes Red Bull Air Race (RBAR) World Championship last April 21st after a roller coaster of a day on Sunday.

The French Red Bull Air Race started with a spectacular qualifying session in the sports history, won by our brand ambassador. The consistency and precision of the #Alpina Watches pilot during the Sunday race gave him access to the podium. Mike Goulian holds the first top spot for the World Championship standings.

This race marked Goulian’s second podium in the team’s 2018 season, after having won the first race in Abu Dhabi last February. Never before in Goulian’s 10-year RBAR career has the team seen consecutive podiums, until now.

Goulian still leads the world championship with 24 points, but Australia’s Matt Hall is now on his heels with 21 points and Japan’s Yoshi Muroya is in third with 19 total points.

To celebrate his podium a few days after the race, #michaelgoulian visited the #Alpina Watches Manufacture in Plan-les-Ouates, Switzerland. During the event, he and his team had a tour of the Manufacture and a Q&A session with the #Alpina employees. It was great to meet with our ambassador again and to congratulate him in person on his constant outstanding performances.

We can’t wait for the next race in Chiba.
