Following a dismal 2014, Richard Carr was pleased to see the UIM ClassOne World Powerboat Championship return with the announcement of its 2015 race calendar.
The UIM has announced that a mixture of classic Offshore Racing and Grand Prix circuits will combine to make up this year’s championship, which has been agreed and finalised by representatives from the UIM, teams, drivers and H20 racing and the promoter of the UIM ClassOne World Powerboat Championship.
When in Rome
The agreement was reached during a Class1/V1 Stakeholders’ meeting in Rome, Italy. As mentioned above, a mixture of representatives and drivers reached an overall agreement on the racing calendar for the coming season.
Taking advantage of the revival of the legendary international Endurance Race Venezia – Monte Carlo by the CEFID Multimedia Organizing Committee, two Class 1 / V1 stages shall be held within this most fascinating Event in the Mediterranean Sea:
- The first race will be held on the opening day on 1st July, from Venezia, while the second race will take place from Salerno on 9th of July.
It was also agreed to maintain the Terracina race on the calendar, which would take place from 16th to 18th October.
The stage of the final event will again be Abu Dhabi, where this year three races will be organized on 18th, 20th and 21st November instead of a single event as in the past.
30 June/1 July – Venezia/Rimini, Italy
8/9 July – Salerno/(tbc), Italy
16/18 October – Terracina, Italy (tbc)
16/21 November – Abu Dhabi, UAE
