TEDESCHI HAILS "BEST EVER" TITLE
Angelo Tedeschi (centre) celebrates the title with his Seagull crewAngelo Tedeschi made it a hat-trick of SuperSport titles as his #43 Seagull Chaudron crew took the Powerboat P1 World Championship to the delight of scores of Ukrainian fans in Syracuse, Sicily.
A second place finish proved enough for Tedeschi and team-mates Aaron Ciantar and Viktor Shemchuk as the challenge of #38 Baia Attolini bravely faded at the final hurdle.
Starting the Endurance contest 11 points clear of Stefano Acanfora, Roy Capasso and Renato Guidi, Seagull drove a risk-free race to ensure the title stays with Tedeschi and his team for at least another 12 months.
Angelo Tedeschi said: "Every year it gets better and better. The competition has been its hardest so in that respects it is definitely the most satisfactory.
ďAll season there has been a lot of nerves and tension between us and Baia Attolini and there has been some tough moments both on and off the water."
It was #26 Team SW1 Capital who continued their sensational run of end-of-season form as Daniel Cramphorn and Kim Collins made it back-to-back double Grand Prix of the Sea victories.
The British-born team led the 71.76 nautical mile race from the outset and were seldom threatened by their open-canopy rivals - a result which sees them move into third above non-starters #17 Spirit of Belgium.
Baia Attolini finished the 14 lap race in third place despite incurring a one minute penalty for overspeeding while PowerPole sitters #44 Iko Casa ended the season with a hard-earned fourth place.
#22 Big Sergio finished fifth and #28 Blue Shaft was forced to retire with an unspecified technical problem.
