Sundsdal said today:
We are finalising a radical new format for the event at the moment and there is a great deal of interest in our plans
We are sure that we are shaping circuit racing for the future, and we promise an even better show for our audience with more spectacular race-starts.
Sundsdal is not prepared to reveal the new format or timetable yet:
We want to align it with both the Norges Motorsportforbund(NMF) and the Union Internationale Motonautique (UIM) before we announce!
Joyce Christine Andersen commented on the continued partnership with Branko’s Auto AS:
The fact that we have the Subaru brand, local dealer Branko´s Auto, and their owner and managing director Morten Danby, it is incredibly important for the Tønsberg Båtrace.
Not only is Morten our sponsor, he is also one of our valued volunteers who works tirelessly over the race weekend.
