Powerboat P1 World Championship Set to Run in Gothenburg, Sweden on August 7 - 9

With just three more races set to run in the 2009 season, Powerboat P1 heads to Gothenburg, Sweden in 2 weeks to take the action to the tough Langedrag course. Rounds 7 and 8 of the championship will see the Powerboat P1 World Championship making its first appearance in Gothenburg – a city shaped by its close connection to the sea.

Over 10,000 people will have a unique opportunity to watch the breathtaking event from the city’s famous military landmark, the Oscar II fort – a historic fortress which was last opened to the public back in 2004. Gothenburg’s maritime heritage makes the city an ideal location for a P1 event, and a significant proportion of Sweden’s exports and imports pass through Gothenburg’s port, which is the largest in the region.

As one of only six racers to have won the famous Cowes Torquay Race more than once, SNAV OSG driver Hannes Bohinc will be returning to world-class powerboating action in Gothenburg. The Austrian and his throttleman, Giancarlo Cangiano, will look to take their #88 Outerlimits SV-43 to the head of the leaderboard. Winning two of this season’s three Grand Prix events, the team is currently in second place, behind British team Silverline.

“In four of six races this season our boat has performed well and we are hoping for another strong showing in Gothenburg,” says Bohinc. “The Swedish people can be assured of a very competitive and spectacular battle.” For more information and continuing updates on the race, go to Powerboat P1's website.
