Norway’s Marit Stromoy was named ‘Driver of the Year’ at the 11th Union Internationale Motonautique (UIM) Awards Ceremony, staged at Le Musée Olympique in Lausanne last night.

She received the highest score in a social media poll and a vote by the UIM Council and beat off some tough competition including F1H2o and F2 world champions Shaun Torrente and Rashed Al Qemzi.

The sport’s ‘Junior Driver of the Year’ title went to 11-year-old Estonian Ander Hubert Lauri, winner of both the 2019 UIM Aquabike Ski Juniors GP3.2 World and European Championships.

Stromoy said after the prize giving:

So incredibly proud to be named Driver of The Year by the International powerboat federation, UIM!

This means so much to me and my team, sponsors and family!

Thank you for nominating me, voting for me and supporting me.
