« A World Stratos Meeting just as I have imagined. First of all I want to thank the 40 owners who have trusted me and bringing their Stratos from long distance such as Mark Ketcham from California winning a special prize. Then a huge thank to Zenith, without them such an event would not have been possible. Thanks to Gabriele Bodo and Nicola Salin for the great logistic organisation, thanks to my friend Guido Avandero who invited all of us for lunch at his splendid property, thanks to the city of Biella and thanks to Raffaella that has been working close to me on the project last six months” said Erik Comas at the end.
