The 2-day event, which attracted more than 40,000 spectators over the two days, was the third stop of the Red Bull Air Race World Championship 2015.
Arch finished ahead of Martin Sonka and Matt Hall on Sunday to claim his second consecutive race in Croatia.
“I’m really happy, especially in front of the fans. I tried to not get over excited and was calm out there. That was more important. I just tried to do it as cleanly as possible in the final, ” said Arch after the win.
The event, which has been held now for the last two years in Rovinj, is a great coup not only for Istria but for Croatian tourism as a whole, as it attracts a number of tourists outside the peak tourist season.
