Temora to host 2020 Penrite V8 Superboats season opener this weekend

The hotly anticipated 2020 Penrite Australian V8 Superboats Championship gets underway this coming weekend with the annual ‘Colin Parish Memorial’ event under lights at Kennards Hire Park in Temora, New South Wales.

It has been more than three months (15-weeks) since the final round of the 2019 season, and typically, the off-season has thrown out a few curve balls, forcing a number of teams on the back foot heading into the opening round.

Czech mate for Lucas Zahorsky

Lucas Zahorsky underlined his top billing at the inaugural UAE Motosurf Championship with victory in the men’s event in Abu Dhabi where he starts the defence of his world title next month.

Zahorsky topped qualifying ahead of František Novotný 22 and went on to comfortably beat his fellow Czech into second place in the final, with Martin Vlček in third place.

World champion Lucas Zahorsky to star in inaugural UAE Motosurf Championship

Reigning world champion Lucas Zahorsky heads into this weekend’s inaugural UAE Motosurf Championship looking to give another reminder of the talent that has taken him to the top in this emerging water sport discipline.

The 18-year-old has made a flying visit to Abu Dhabi to contest the new event after being impressed by what he found in the UAE capital during the 2019 UIM MotoSurf World Cup hosted by Abu Dhabi International Marine Sports Club (ADIMSC).

Abdulrazzaq wins at home

Team Abu Dhabi’s Rashed Al Tayer was denied back-to-back victories in the Grand Prix of Kuwait today by another dramatic twist in the opening round of the 2020 UIM-ABP Aquabike World Championship.

The Emirati rider, who won the previous day’s first Runabout GP1 moto from pole position, made another superb start to moto two and held a comfortable lead from Kuwait’s Yousef Al Abdulrazzaq before being halted by mechanical problems on the eighth of 18 laps.
