El Diablo now lead the VOOMQUEST Enemed UIM V2 World Powerboat Championship with 55 Points, after placing first in Races 1 and 3, and third in Race 2 this weekend.
El Diablo’s Clive Butler said after the racing:
Super team.. super race.. no words can describe this experience.
Race 3 saw Interceptor Remax lead for the first 9 laps, however El Diablo got passed them to take victory.
Interceptor Remax are now second in the championship.
After the final podium, organiser Aaron Ciantar said:
It was an incredible weekend, and although we had to alter the programme, with great determination and perseverance we still managed all three races.
Thankfully there were no accidents, we raced fast and the teams helped each other as and when required as they were very supportive until the very end.
We also saw changes in the podium as now all drivers have achieved a high racing standard, and at this stage the results are an open book as anything can happen.
From his side, Kevin Chircop, Executive Chairman – Enemed, had this to say:
I am positively surprised and impressed as to how quickly drivers are improving their performance from race to race.
It’s a pleasure to see a rotation of positions on the podium and in the races and it’s evident that this title is sparking more and more determination from the drivers to win this world title.
We are building something unique here and as the main sponsor and official fuel supplier to the championship, I cannot be but pleased of how things are evolving.
Jean Marie Van Lancker, UIM Official and Offshore President was also present:
I have been travelling for a couple of months now and can say that everyone from all over the world is interested in what we are doing here.
I am proud that there were no accidents during the weekend as this shows that the teams are becoming professional too.
Last but not least, I would like to thank Aaron Ciantar for believing and trusting in me, together we will take VOOMQUEST higher.
