New Racing Promoter is Bullish on the Future of Class 1

H20 Racing's Nicolò di San Germano is optimistic that the new direction of UIM Class 1 World Powerboat Championship will boost the sport and help move it forward. As head of Class 1 Promotion and the Championship’s newly appointed promoter, San Germano believes that strength in numbers, clear communication and implementation of fair rules will be a major element in getting things on track.

"Our target is to have a minimum of ten boats and this part I think we have already overcome because we have interest from over ten boats for the beginning of the season." Past experience has demonstrated that racers and fans want clarity and fairness in the applicaiton of rules - and this is a top priority this year. "“First of all," he adds, "the rules have to be clear and they [UIM] have done this and now through strong independent referees they must be applied."

For San Germano, the move into Class 1 was a logical step - where he will be looking to draw on and exercise his 17 years of experience as a successful water sports promoter to reinvigorate the sports appeal. “In powerboat circles worldwide Class 1 represents glamour, and was the first class to have a series promoter, Mr Mauro Ravenna. The fact that we are involved in other marine sports, F1H2o, now the new Nations Cup and now Aquabike, it was a logical step to add Class 1 to our effort."
