Carella Leaves Victory Team

Please Share!

Four time UIM F1H2o World Champion, Alex Carella, has left the Victory Team and will no longer be racing for them in the UIM F1H2o series our European Editor, Silvia Borgonovi can exclusively report.

Carella, who left Team Abu Dhabi after winning his 4th title in 2017, joined the Victory Team with the view of taking on a new challenge.

The challenge was huge, the development of the Victory built and designed F1H2o hulls was an uphill battle, whilst fast, they were notoriously difficult to control, even for such a talented driver as Carella.

In 2017, he only managed one finish, at the first race in Portugal, and hurt himself in both London and Evian while trying to stay competitive in the development hull.

When Erik Stark announced that he would be joining Victory on July 17, it was assumed that the Dubai based outfit would be fielding a 3 boat team with Carella and Ahmed Al Hameli.

Now we know that assumptions aren’t always correct.
