Pierre Lundin’s speed of 194km was more than good enough to secure the fastest time on Lake Peurunkajarvi, Finland this evening.
Lundin’s closest challengers were Erik Edin and Uvis Slakteris who hit 193km.
Allex Carella and Konstantin Ustinov both achieved 191km.
The Speed Run was robbed of seeing Lundin’s team mate, Mette Brandt Bjerknæs’ brand new Moore hull making a run when her OptiMax 200XS developed mechanical issues just before.
