In the directory Documents\Condor\FlightTracks is a file with the name LastTrack.ftr. You can load this file in the Condor under menu item FLIGHT ANALYSIS and save a IGC file. But remember, you find only the last track, which means if you have flown a new task after the VirtualSoaring.eu task, you will only find the new one.
