Palfreyman launches 2017 UIM F2 World Championship bid at London Boat Show

Matt Palfreyman’s Pepstar Racing Team will unveil their UIM F2 powerboat at the London Boat Show on the 6th of January.

At 12 noon, Palfreyman will lift the covers off of his 120 mph Mercury powered BaBa catamaran to reveal an exciting new livery with 2017 sponsors and team partners.

EP Barrus, the UK distributor for Mercury Marine engines will be supporting Palfreyman’s 2017 UIM F2 World Championship bid.

Lee Allen, the Barrus Technical Service Manager and Pepstar Racing’s Chief Engineer will be race preparing the team’s Mercury OptiMax 200XS SST outboard during the season which will include races to be held at Lithuania, Switzerland, Belgium, Norway, Portugal and Turkey.

Palfreyman has already enjoyed success working with Pepstar Racing, in 2015 he took the UIM F2 World Championship Silver Medal and followed that up with Silver in last year’s UIM F2 European Championship.
The 24 year old, from Aughton in Lancashire said;

It’s great to have EP Barrus behind us this year, I am confident that I can reward their support with a British World Championship win to help mark the company’s Centenary Celebrations.
