24 Heures motonautiques de Rouen – Chiappe’s Cinque

Please Share!

There is no let up in Philippe Chiappe’s World title pursuit, 8 days ago in Portimao he won the first round of the 2017 UIM F1H2o Championship and is already favourite to regain the crown for a fourth consecutive year.

In France today with Team Nollet he won Class S1 honours and the 24 Heures motonautiques de Rouen overall for the fifth time.

The Franco Italian outfit, Team Privilege – Tullio Abbate (below), took the Class S2 overall win and second overall.

Their consistency and speed throughout the demanding 24 hour race saw off rival teams with bigger budgets and perhaps bigger names in the cockpit, they finished an impressive 29 laps shy of the overall winner.

A full report of the 24 Heures motonautiques de Rouen with Chris Davies’ photographs, a guest article by New Star driver Shaun Torrente will be in Issue #2 of Powerboat Racing World Magazine.
