Great job Guys!
P1 TIME TRIAL REACHES OUTERLIMITS!
US manufacturer's team Outerlimits Powerboats took top honours and their first P1 victory in the dying seconds of the Powerboat P1 Time Trial, slicing two tenths off the time of Wettpunkt.com
It was a race of skill and power as the boats battled against the clock with Austrian Hannes Bohinc setting the benchmark at 48.88 seconds, three tenths ahead of the Mercury powered Americans, at the end of the first run into the crowd-lined harbour. In SuperSport, Briton's Jackie Hunt and Mike Shelton set a blistering pace, posting a first run of 58.77 seconds, a time that proved difficult to match by their fellow competitors.
High seas had forced the cancellation of the second leg of the Powerboat P1 Maltese Grand Prix of the Sea. Conditions outside of Valletta Harbour were considered dangerous enough not to put teams and safety crews at risk and the time trial initiative within the harbour walls was introduced to reward the large crowds with a show.
The Powerboat P1 World Championship now heads to Naples for the Italian Grand Prix of the Sea on the 26 â€" 27 May 2007 when crowds will be treated to another drama-packed weekend of racing.
