Andrea and Lorenzo Bacchi won Race 2 today at the UIM Class 3D World Championships taking place in Rodi Garganico Italy.
Following their win on Friday and second place today Serafino Barlesi and Alessandro Barone onboard D20, currently lead the overall classification of the UIM Class 3D World Championship.
The Norwegian duo of Erik Sundblad Johansen and Jan Trygve Braaten failed to finish the race on Sunday due to a brand-new fuel bulb splitting which shut down the engine.
Another team with fraught with mechanical issues were Notschaele and Magnani. On Friday they were left with a broken one following an oil leak and then on Sunday their right-hand motor had an alternator failure, their second of the weekend.
When Francis Ciccio Notschaele spoke to PRW he said,
Well, that was my first experience in Offshore Class 3D racing in D8. A weekend full of emotions, heavy seas and too many technical issues. Both our boats D69 and D8 had problems but what is most important is the great atmosphere in our dream team. What a super feeling together with Fabio Magnani, Kristian Ghedina, and Giampaolo Montavoci.
