Chris Davies ARPS, has been photographing and writing about powerboat racing since 1987.
For the Tenth consecutive year, the world's best powerboat racers joined forces for the UIM's biggest night of the year when the Union Internationale Motonautique World Champions & Awards Giving Gala was held at the Sporting Monte-Carlo on Saturday evening.
Springtime has over the years been the season for International Boat Shows, and this has given several of the UIM F2 World Championship Teams the opportunity to not only showcase themselves but also their sponsors whose continued support enable them to compete on the world stage.
It’s been just three months since the final round of the UIM F2 Powerboat World Championship and already preparations are well underway for several drivers for the 2019 racing season.
Tobias Munthe-Kaas, who is currently lies in second place in the 2018 UIM F2 World Championship, was extremely lucky to even be lining up on the start pontoon today for the penultimate round in Ribadouro.
Team Abu Dhabi’s Rashed Al Qemzi broke the hearts of the local spectators on the Douro River in Ribadouro when he snatched pole position from the grasp of their sporting hero Duarte Benavente.
Duarte Benavente won here in Ribadouro, Portugal twelve months ago and come Sunday, the local spectators will once again be out in huge numbers to cheer on their local ‘super-star’.
