The 2015 Trans-Atlantic Fan Fund winner is Nina Horvath of Austria. She outpolled Wolf von Witting in a tight race. According to TAFF co-administrator Jim Mowatt:
One featured more strongly in Europe and the other was the North American favourite. Both easily passed the twenty per cent test and both were impeccably behaved throughout.
The final count was so incredibly close that I had absolutely no idea who was going to win until the last few votes were counted….
Many commiserations go to Wolf von Witting. He came within a gnat’s whisker of victory. I do hope he runs again and I wish him all the best in a future race.
