Italians Enjoy Victory at Home in PowerboatP1 Weekend

Italian teams dominated round 5 of the Powerboat P1 World Championship Italian Grand Prix of the Sea, held in the Adriatic Sea off San Benedetto del Tronto, Italy. With both Evolution and SuperSport racers enjoying very smooth water on Saturday in the sprint races, Italian-flagged teams took the top three spots in both classes. The fast Snav OSG team followed up Saturday's Sprint Race Evolution Class victory by winning the Endurance Race on Sunday.

SuperSport victors Baia-Attolini ensured the Italians dominated the race weekend. In contrast to Saturday, weather conditions were very turbulent on Sunday, knocking out all but three boats in the Evolution Class. Fairing slightly better than their Evolution peers, only two boats failed to cross the finish line, with championship hopefuls Ikocasa and Team SW1 Capital suffering from mechanical problems.
