Spotlight: Powerboat P1's All-Girl Team

The world of offshore racing is in a state of flux right now, there's still plenty of great series out there and some new developments (like the CBS deals with SBI) are giving racers and enthusiasts hope that we can get this sport back to where it was in past decades. There is little doubt that worldwide, the PowerboatP1 series is up at the front of the pack in terms of quality, visibility and overall organization, combining outstanding competition, state-of-the-art marketing & promotion and a very classy image.

With that in mind, we wanted to highlight the #44 Iko Casa all-girl team, driving a Chaudron 41, powered by twin 530hp, 8.2-litre Mercury engines. Driven by Brit Shelley Jory and throttled by Audrien Ciantar of Malta, the boat became had become a consistently fast machine under the watchful eye of experienced throttleman and team owner Angelo Tedeschi in 2007.

After Aaron Ciantar and Angelo Tedeschi became 2008 SuperSport Champions in the boat, they moved over to drive the Ukrainian Spirit's #43 Seagull Chaudron. As a result, the all-female team was assigned for 2009, with Shelley and Audrien already proving to be competitive. We wish them luck!
