The Tønsberg Friday night UIM F2 action saw a Speed Run and Match Racing.
Austria’s Rupert Temper proved to be the quickest boat on the night, while 2015 UIM F2 World Champion Pierre Lundin was second quickest.
Tønsberg organiser and resident, Frode Sundsdal took a popular third overall and capped his 60th birthday off with style.
Temper beat Britain’s Owen Jelf in the third place Match Racing ‘play off’, while Lundin narrowly pipped fellow Swede Erik Edin for the evening’s ‘bragging rights’.
The Match Racing final could well be a reflection of the 2016 Championship as the Swede’s look to be the strongest contenders for the title.
