The third Grand Prix of the 2022 Voomquest Enemed V2 Powerboat Championships kicked off today in Cervia, Italy, when the first race of the weekend took place.
Weather conditions for the day were not ideal with choppy seas making racing challenging even for the more experienced drivers.
These conditions led to disappointment for the new team Warson Motors, who decided to play safe and sit out today’s race.
Taking the win for the first day was Clive Butler and Sammy Grima’s El Diablo, who were out to gain highest points to maintain their lead in the overall rankings.
Competing in this event as a wild card entry is five-time world champion Aaron Ciantar, who together with co-driver Ryan Micallef racing for Team Chaudron finished in second place.
Behind them were Interceptor Remax driven by Michael Xuereb and Sam Howes.
Racing returns tomorrow, Saturday 2nd September.
With sea conditions in the area generally choppy, it will make for another interesting race day.
