Jelf eyes fourth UIM F2 title

Chris Davies on 2nd July 2021

Colin Jelf and his team will make the 1300 mile trip to Kupiskis this weekend with the aim of winning a fourth UIM F2 world championship this year.

Last season acted as a come back for the British racer, after leading the first round race in Lithuania, he dislodged a buoy and was given a one lap penalty.

In the second round held in Portugal, he was spectacularly blown out of contention by a rogue gust of wind.

The Kingfisher Fire & Security sponsored driver looked back:

2020 saw us prove the boat had the speed to be competitive in the fleet, it was a new boat and a new set up so last season was really all about getting to grips with the boat and finding her biting point.

Looking forward to the 2021 campaign he continued:

We still haven’t had a lot of time in the boat with the COVID-19 restrictions, but we have a fantastic sponsor and a strong team behind us.

We will just have to see what we can do!
