“To be honest we hadn’t planned to race in Portugal” Seliö said. “Then we looked at the points table following the round in Lithuania and saw that I was third overall. So, I said OK, let’s go because it’s good for Sharjah International Marine Sports Club and it’s good for team moral. These two rounds will probably be my last in F2 because next year we will introduce a local Sharjah racer and he will race in this championship.”
“Big time surprise that I managed to finish on the podium with an engine that wasn’t working one hundred per cent” commented Seliö.
“F2 is on the limit right now, it’s so tight but for sure the podium is our target.”
“They have been super busy since they arrived in Portugal. They are well prepared and the boat looks good. It’s really great to see them as now we have drivers from the US and Australia which will raise the profile on a true world-wide scale.”
