WIN - TEAM ABU DHABI

 Sunday, 8 August, UDDEVALLA (Sweden): Team Abu Dhabi will walk away with maximum points from this weekend’s Swedish Grand Prix, after today’s race winners’, Arif Al Zafeen and Nadir Bin Nendi, were handed a post-race time penalty for an overtaking infringement on the start-lap.

The 27.62secs long-lap time penalty added to the World Champions overall race time gives Rashed Al Tayer and Giovanni Carpitella a second Grand Prix win in two days, and on the weekend that marked the team’s full time entry into the Class 1 World Powerboat Championship.

Victory Team general manager, Gianfranco Venturelli, confirmed that the team has lodged a protest against the penalty.
