Victory driver Alex Carella will be racing in UIM F2 at Tonsberg for the team over the weekend of August 3 – 5.
The 4 time F1h2o World Champion has been entered by Team Manager Scott Gillman with Mansoor al Mansoori.
Carella who is fit again after crashing out of the Evian F1h2o race at the beginning of the month is relishing the challenge.
Gillman told Tonsberg race organiser Frode Sundsdal:
Alex will be working with the team in Tonsberg to continue with the development of our new F2 hulls.
Victory have designed and built boats for both F1H2o and F2 this season, although they are quick, there is still a lot more work to do with set-up and handling.
