Default Powerboat P1 Official Results Grand Prix of Vigo, Spain

MISTAKES COST TEAMS POWERBOAT P1 WIN

Missing a turn buoy cost the Cigarette Fantastic 1, the GFN Gibellato, the Kiton Outerlimits and the #57 Centurian Yachts, first, second, third and fourth place in the Sunday Evolution race of the Powerboat P1 Grand Prix of the Sea in Vigo, Spain. The #10 Cigarette took first place in lap 8 when the leading Fountain World Wide/1stforboats.com boat lost power in one engine. The #88 Kiton boat had been in second, first and third place throughout the race, followed by the Centurian Yachts Outerlimits, which had worked its way from last to fourth place. Then, in the 11th lap of the 12-lap Endurance race, all of those boats followed the erring Cigarette and missed the buoy at the southwest corner of the 6.42 nautical mile race course.

As a result of the penalties imposed, the #53 Pignolo 53 boat took first place, followed by #77 Lucas Oil in second and the #69 Honeyparty.com Skater, that had taken first place in Saturday’s Sprint race. In that race, Fountain Worldwide/1stforboats.com took second and Centurian Yachts took third.

Ciantar delight at first SuperSport crown
Today


Aaron Ciantar and Angelo Tedeschi celebrate #44 Conam Yachts' SuperSport title success in VigoNewly-crowned SuperSport champion Aaron Ciantar has expressed his delight at winning his first Powerboat P1 title, and has praised the winning attitude of his team-mate and defending champion Angelo Tedeschi – the team boss and throttleman of the Racing Project-run #44 Conam Yachts outfit.

Ciantar, who is celebrating his first title success after joining Tedeschi in the team this year, is the son of Charlie Ciantar – boss of the Chaudron boat-building firm which provides the Mercury-powered hull used by Aaron and Tedeschi this year. The team have managed to combine stunning speed with bulletproof reliability, winning all but one race and only losing that victory through a jump-start penalty.

“It’s absolutely fantastic to have won the championship here today,” Aaron said. “From the beginning of today’s race we held our speed well and from the third lap it was an easy race. Although we knew we only needed 20 points, we didn’t want to back off, because we go out every time with the aim to win, and we really wanted to win the championship with a race win. Even though we’ve won the championship, when we get to Portugal we’ll be aiming to win two more races.”


Congratulations to CONAM YACHTS on dominating the 2008 P1 Supersport Championship with Weismann Marine drives.

Weismann Marine the choice of CHAMPIONS.
