VICTORY TEAM TO LAUNCH TWIN FAZZA

 Tuesday, 15 June: Dubai’s Victory Team will head to Arendal for the BMW Norwegian Grand Prix, 16-18 July, looking to extend their lead in the World Championship standings and stretch their run of consecutive wins.

Not surprisingly, Victory’s general manager, Gianfranco Venturelli, has confirmed that the line-ups in both boats remains unchanged, with double World Champions Arif Al Zafeen and Nadir bin Hendi, who lead the Championship by ten points, in Fazza 3 and Abdullah Al Mehairbi and Mohammed Al Marri, also a double World Champion, in Fazza 1.

Since regaining the World title in 2007, the team has won 18 out of 25 races, with Al Zafeen and Bin Hendi netting 14 - 10 of those together. In the last three years just three teams, other than Victory, have taken race wins, four by Spirit of Norway in 2007, two by Jotun and the last team to beat them, Qatar 95, in 2008.

In Arendal the defending World Champions will be looking to add to their double win in the Brazilian Grand Prix in Rio de Janeiro and extend the team’s 11-race unbeaten run and their six-race winning streak.
