Class One Romanian Grand Prix powerboat racing – Race 1

The first race in the Romanian Grand Prix, round three of the UIM WPPA Class 1 World Powerboat Championship powerboat racing, was run on Saturday on the Siutghiol Lake, the Black Sea resort of Mamaia, and won by the Fazza 3 team composed of Arif Al Zafeen and Nadir Bin Hendi of the United Arab Emirates.

Fazza 3 clocked in at 00.34.56,06. They were followed by Victory 1 – made up of Mohammad Al Mehairi of the UAE and Frenchman Jean-Marc Sanchez, with a gap of 00.23,90, and Welmax 90 – composed of Norwegians Kolbjorn Selmer and Joern Tandberg, with a gap of 01.08,45.

The Norwegians put up a formidable race, coming from the 8th place following an incident at the start line with Victory 77 of the UAE, which was disqualified.

The Maritiomo 12 team of Dutch Peter McGrath and San Marino’s Giorgio Manuzzi forfeited the race on lap 7 after a spectacular capsize.

Nadir Bin Hendi is the current world champion, while Arif Al Zafeen is the 2007 world champion.

In the overall rankings after three of ten races, Victory 1 and Fazza are tied on the first place, with 51 points each, and are followed by Maritimo 11 with 24 points. The second race of the Class One Romanian Grand Prix is scheduled for today.
