Does anyone know: what is the farthest anyone has flown in a Grob 103?

Well... Don't know about records or anything, but, as some may remember, the K Clan flew the G103 Twin Astir- TF, out of Telluride during the 08 Region 9 Sport Class Champs in Parowan, and did the following between 6/19-6/28: 187mi, 531(yep 531!), 220, 262, 306, 294, 237, 278, 341 and 332miles. Average Distance: 298.8mi, Average Speed: 69.1mph, Average Time: 4.3hrs. I was back-seater, make'n cocktails and bullwhip'n the front-seater, when not driving here and there.... Do you like the average speed and distance? 1st BTW... Hope that helps...
The K Clan...

Sept 28, 1981 1000 km O&R multiplace world record, Grob G-103. I believe this was the first two place 1,000 km flight.

Helmut Reichmann flew a 1000km flight with his sister at a Barron Hilton cup in the 80's.
