The action-packed Finals of the 2019 season saw the Longines Global Champions Tour and GCL culminate in a stunning competition in the iconic city of New York for the first time, attracting a phenomenal lineup of star riders and top horsepower to The Big Apple.
The event took place on Governors Island, with breathtaking views of the Statue of Liberty and the Lower Manhattan skyline. The 172-acre Governors Island in New York Harbour was transformed into a unique venue for sport, art, and culture and formed the perfect setting for the high-stakes climax to the 2019 season.
The event was filled with dramatic action, not least with the power pairings of Explosion W and Ben Maher and Clooney 51 and Martin Fuchs, who propelled London Knights to victory in the GCL New York and the overall 2019 Championship with spectators on the edge of their seats until the final seconds. Four flawless clear rounds were delivered by the unbeatable London Knights who secured a historic second GCL title win, after a rollercoaster season saw them duelling with St Tropez Pirates throughout year.
British superstar Ben Maher (GBR) wrote history aboard Explosion W in an extraordinary Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of New York, taking the LGCT Grand Prix win and the 2019 Championship title just hours after helping to secure the GCL team series crown for the London Knights. Spectators filled the grandstand and packed out every inch of space to watch as the knife-edge Championship reached its conclusion.
